Dr. Michael Thio, President of VIncent dePaul Society announces that the Daughters of Charity have presented them with the precious gifts of the holy relics of St. Louise de Marillac and also that of Blessed Sister Rosalie Rendu. “The President General, Dr. Michael Thio, received these with great honour from Sister Rosa Maria Miro, General Assistant, at their Motherhouse at rue de Bac on 8 March 2012. A special and grateful thanks to Sister Evelyne Franc, Superior General, for her consent.
These honoured relics have been placed in our chapel in our Headquarters in Paris. This marked a significant event in the history of the SOCIETY and endorses the very close relationship and solidarity that is existing between the Daughters of Charity and the SOCIETY. We express our sincere and deep appreciation to the Daughters of Charity for this wonderful and inspiring Gifts of Love. St Louise de Marillac was the co-founder of the Daughters of Charity with St. Vincent de Paul. Blessed Sister
Rosalie Rendu was very closely associated with our early founders and provided them with inspiring advice, counseling and guidance in their early formation spiritually and in their works of mercy in serving the poor. Tremendous assistance was extended by her to our first conference members of the Society.”
