May 9: Feast of St. Louise de Marillac

by | May 5, 2017 | Formation | 2 comments

As St. Louise’s feast day approaches, we would like to highlight a series of three videos in which Sr. Louise Sullivan, DC talks with Sr. Elisabeth Charpy, DC about St. Louise’s life and works. The first video covers the early history of the Daughters of Charity, including: care of the foundlings, care of galley slaves, and care of wounded soldiers.

The second video covers the foundation of the small schools of the Confraternities, that were established in seventeenth century France. They opened the door for a type of education that was geared toward the integral education of children.

The third video describes some of the first Daughters of Charity: their varied backgrounds, their personalities, their experiences as they were formed in their vocations, led by St. Louise de Marillac.

      Thanks to Sister Louise and Sœur Elisabeth for making these videos available to famvin. Hearing these stories told by those who know our charism adds another dimension vs. reading them in a book.
