(CNN) — Across the state of Florida, and up into Georgia and South Carolina, images of first responders have become a welcome sight amid the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.
But among the usual uniforms — those of police, firefighters and paramedics — a nun’s habit stands out.
And when said nun is wielding a chainsaw, well, that is something that can renew faith in even the most downtrodden.
A 30-year education veteran from Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll High School in West Kendall, Florida, Sister Margaret Ann knew of a chainsaw in her school’s closet, so she thought nothing of ripping into a downed tree blocking a road.
An off-duty police officer captured video of the chainsaw-wielding nun, sharing the footage on the department’s Twitter feed on Tuesday.

“He said, ‘You know though, Sister, the police will do this.’ And I said ‘but it’s going to take them too long … it’s dangerous, people are going to get hurt here.’ ”
In the meantime, Sister Margaret Ann, and those like her, will continue to do the Lord’s work.
