Blessed Rosalie Rendu – February 7

Awarded the French Legion of Honor Medal, mysteriously still has fresh flowers put on her grave in Paris, stood at the barricades ministering and calling for peace in time of war, mentor to a group of young collegians who work continues today in almost every country in the world… just some of the things that can be said about Sister Rosalie. VinFormationdraws attention to some of the resources that tell her story in greater detail.

For further reading, we recommend the beautifully written biography
Sister Rosalie Rendu: A Daughter of Charity On Fire with Love for the Poor by Louise Sullivan, D.C.

In particular, read the following chapters on two key aspects of Bl. Rosalie’s service of the poor of the Mouffetard District of Paris:

    What I love about Rosalie Rendu especially is her wish that we teach the poor to better themselves, to make of themselves more than they were at present. She wasn’t just about bringing bread and soup; was about teaching them to bake and sell bread and to create and sell the soup! gh
