Bonus: Interview with Mary Ellen McNally

May 19, 2021


Mary Ellen McNally is one of Louise’s Cape May “beach friends,” and in this conversation they revisited events from the early days after Archer’s accident. They also explored broader themes of faith, prayer, relational awareness, and how their careers helped them learn more about themselves and how to relate to others. 

When Louise collapsed at mass, just a few days after the accident, Mary Ellen was in the right place at the right time to catch her as she fell. And, later, Mary Ellen woke up in the middle of the night feeling compelled to pray for Archer, so she got on her knees and prayed.
