St. Louise de Marillac Video

by | May 23, 2021 | Formation

For the next few moments, shut out all the distractions of the world (or plan another time when you can be alone or in a group without distractions) and reflect on this video from the Daughters of Charity International.

Saint Louise de Marillac, pray for us!


Is there something here for me to remember? Is there an action I need to take? Is there more for me to understand about St. Louise’s character? Lord, help me personalize her message to my heart today.




Saint Louise de Marillac
Contemplative, mystic

“Oh how true it is that souls who seek God will find Him everywhere, but especially in the poor!”

“Pray earnestly to the Blessed Virgin, that she may be your only Mother.”


Saint Louise de Marillac

“As for your conduct toward the sick, may you never take the attitude of merely getting the task done. You must show them affection; … gently and compassionately”

“I especially beg you, for the love of God, to show great gentleness to the poor…”

“I beg Him with all my heart to let you know how good it is to trust in God!”

“… above all, be very gentle and courteous toward your poor. You know that they are our masters and that we must love them tenderly and respect them deeply.”


Saint Louise de Marillac
Mentor, collaborator

“Remain, then, at peace, in Our Lord’s love.”

“Go then courageously, advancing moment by moment on the path on which God has placed you in order to reach Him.”


Saint Louise de Marillac
Woman transformed

“Remember that the thing that we must have most at heart, is to satisfy the wishes of our Divine Master.”

“You are well aware, my dear Sister, that the path by which God wants you to go to Him is the royal road of the Cross.”
