The service of those who are most deprived draws its strength from the contemplation of Jesus Christ, who often went aside to pray. In this Prayer Corner, at the beginning of each month, a presentation will be offered to help you nourish and deepen your inner life and discover the meaning of Vincentian spirituality.
If you would like your prayer intentions to be remembered in our Chapel of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal in Paris, please fill in the form on this page: YOUR INTENTIONS
SUZANNE GUILLEMIN: A SHINING FIGURE
On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the death of Mother Suzanne Guillemin, the great prophet of the Company of the Daughters of Charity, an exhibition has been set up in her memory at the Motherhouse in Paris entitled: “Sister Suzanne Guillemin: A Shining Figure”.
Sister Suzanne Guillemin, Superioress General of the Company of the Daughters of Charity from 1962 to 1968, is recognized in the Church not only because of her position at the head of the Company, but also because of her outstanding personality, which made her the symbol of women’s promotion within the Church.
She was one of the leading female auditors at Vatican II, one of the foremost women of the Roman Curia. She left the entire Church an extraordinarily shining and courageous message, “prophetic” in nature that we still need to hear today.
