To celebrate Madeleine Sophie, the Province of Brazil has shared this excerpt from the book: One Life, One Dream, One Mission - St. Madeleine Sophie Barat (Uma VIDA, um SONHO, uma MISSÃO), by Sister Elizabeth Amarante, rscj:
Our elder sister, of the fields of Joigny,
You walked in humility,
with a commitment to justice.
You opened your heart
To the missionary side of the universe.
We entrust you with our desire to be reborn
With the power of spirituality, with the courage to respond
To the calls of our time,
without fear of the desert, of the wilderness and of the frontier,
united in one heart, in one community life
and in one apostolic project consistent with the Mission.
May it be like this in the small province of Brazil and in the Society around the world.
