The acclamation of Alleluia evokes for us the last words of Marie-Louise de Jésus.
« At night, some hours before she died, Marie-Louise repeated the word ‘Alleluia! Alleluia!’ .
Sister Julie wanted to know if she was conscious of what she was saying so she asked her what the word ‘Alleluia’ meant in French.
She answered: ‘Alleluia’ means: Let us rejoice in God.’ She then took the crucifix in her hands and proclaimed: ‘My Lord and my God !’ '*
May the expression of faith of our Mother Marie-Louise resound in our heart during this feast of Easter! May the same faith in the Risen Christ give us hope and the courage to commit ourselves to liberating the life-giving possibilities that already permeate our universe** and to open our hearts to Love without borders.
Easter Joy to You
Your sisters from the General Team,
Paris, Easter 2018

The General House of the Congregation of the Daughters of Wisdom has moved to Paris since January 2017. Since then other administrative changes have been made.
While we are making great strides with our move to Paris, the life of the Congregation continues and the General Council resumes its usual activities including two important events.
Official Appointment of the General Secretary
On February 2nd 2017, Sister Ginette Ulysse, our General Secretary officially received her mission at the service of the General Leadership Council, that is, at the service of the entire Congregation.
Sister Ginette who have already proven her worth, made her commitment with the depth and simplicity that characterize her.
Official Appointment of the new General Treasurer
On April 28th 2017, Sister Ruth Dary Palacio Parra officially received her mission as General Treasurer following Sister Anne-Marie Beaudoin with whom she worked for three years.
Sister Ruth Dary assumes her role with joy and enthusiasm in a spirit of great generosity, conscious of the extent of her responsibility at the service of the entire Congregation.
We whole heartedly thank our two Sisters and their two Provinces of origin, (Haiti and Colombia) for their generosity despite courageously assumed sacrifices.
We take this opportunity to thank the Entities who agree to give “of their essentials” to carry out missions at the service of the Corps Congregation in its administrative, formative and intercultural dimension.
