From the Mother-House at Saint-Laurent-sur-Sèvre, the co-foundress of the Daughters of Wisdom, Marie-Louise Trichet wrote on December 19, 1753 :
«I am taking advantage of this brief moment when I am feeling well and strong to wish you a Happy New Year…I would reproach myself if I did not send you a token of my great affection …I shall never forget you. I ask God to shower his graces and blessings on all your small tasks and to renew your fervour …
Your humble servant,
Marie-Louise de Jésus, Daughter of Wisdom ».
«In dialogue with Marie-Louise of Jesus», Letter 12
At the dawn of 2011, in a spirit of communion with Marie-Louise de Jésus, the General Team of the Daughters of Wisdom gladly join with our Sisters across the world and all our Internet Friends, and propose the following prayer of blessing:
«All of us who believe in Life and in its wonders…
at this time when we cross the threshold of a New Year, Father, we want
to express something good of the other and rejoice in it ! «Bene dicere» …
May our face light up and shine,
May your Beauty and your Truth enwrap us, O God
and under your merciful eyes, may the face of others be light for us.
The time remaining for us is short ; time to learn, time to love,
Time to discover your wonders when the focus point is reached
To each one, Happy and Holy New Year !
IN THE LORD’S PEACE !
