The Commitment, Courage, and Stamina of St. Louise de Marillac

“Louise’s spirituality enabled her to see the need for individuals to change themselves and the need to address social problems. She promoted women by training them and matching their gifts to their work; she also made sure they were recipients of service. Rescue and foster care for foundlings, institutional care for young children, work with prisoners, and housing for the elderly were just some of the areas in which Louise served. Her projects were implemented according to surprisingly modern standards of care and were the basis for other developments in their respective fields.”

– from the Abstract of an article by Sr. Margaret John Kelly, D.C.
