“Louise was a woman who needed to communicate and wanted to share her ideas and thoughts with others. She lived a profound human and spiritual experience and felt a need to communicate that experience. She cared deeply for those young women and through her correspondence she was able to make them feel supported, encouraged, and loved by her. She took pleasure in writing to each individual sister. She continually insisted that they should write to her frequently and was not satisfied that the sister servant or some other sister would communicate to her news abut the sisters.”
Sister Carmen Urrizburu, DC writes… “Let us allow Louise to speak to us today through her letters.”
Famvin is happy to present a translation of a lengthy and very insightful study of the letters of Louise which first appeared in July-August 2011 edition of Anales. Volume 119, #4.
Sr. Carmen concludes…”Yes, one must read in order to live, in order to live a profound life!
And to live … is to contribute with simplicity and humility, with great vitality and brilliance and splendor to the charism!”
Reflections for living the charism as revealed in her letters
- Do we lives our lives to the fullest?
- How well do we communicate our support, encouragement and love to those entrusted to our care?
- How would Louise have used email, etc. to communicate with those she loved and served?
