25th of May - Sophie's Feast

  • Sophie's writing set


"I finish without any strength to hold my pen…
your heart will be able to guess,
but nothing will ever diminish or change the tender feelings
with which I am in C. J. M. your Mother”   
Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat
July 7, 1851
The 25th of May is the feast day of Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat!
Today we remember how much she valued communication;
and how she used it to shape and deepen the charism, and to build personal relationships.
