Hélène IswolskyHélène Iswolsky (Елена Александровна Извольская, born in 1896 - died in 1975, Cold Spring, New York, United States) was a Russian noblewoman, anti-communist political refugee, writer, translator and journalist. Raised Russian Orthodox, Helene was received into the Russian Catholic Church in France and later took monastic vows. In her life as a nun, Iswolsky took the name Sister Olga.
American novelist Flannery O'Connor, who "used to go with her nephew", later described Iswolsky as, "a Catholic of the Eastern Rite persuasion and sort of one-man Catholic ecumenical movement." Provided by Wikipedia
