IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF MARIE LOUISE
Sr. Islaine Bénite DW
As soon as the session of the Treasurers of the Congregation of the Daughters of Wisdom began, the participants were galvanized. They listened attentively to the speakers who had come to share their experience and their knowledge. This session was held October 14 to 24, 2015.
From 1703 to the present time, the history of the mission of the Treasurers in the footsteps of the Co-foundress was drawn. What wealth and discovery emerged! The joys that followed, the challenges encountered and the preparation of the future tells of the importance of the mission and task of the Treasurer.
The triad, "return - risk - ethics", calls for vigilance and caution in any financial approach. Six qualities are endorsed as pictured in the six female figures who watch over the common good in "allegory of good government", Peace, Strength, Prudence, Magnanimity, Temperance and Justice.
Through this comprehensive training on financial matters, the Congregation wishes to give meaning to the responsibility of Treasurers helping them to live it as a mission in the heart of the world.
Finally, the group gathered in a spirit of thanksgiving at the Basilica near the tombs of the Founders.
We wish to thank the General Team for their concern for the formation of its members.
