The Strength of Mercy
In this age when hope sometimes seems far off, The Strength of Mercy shows the courage of one woman, Louise de Marillac, in living God's plan for her amid difficulties—a model for the twenty-first century.
A four-week companion: 4 x 7 daily reflections
Louise de Marillac, born out of wedlock into an aristocratic family, young widow and mother of a son, fully committed her life to all those who were suffering, regardless of who they were. In Paris together with St. Vincent de Paul she founded a community of Sisters, who dedicated themselves to care for the sick and for the poor. The Daughters of Charity, one of the largest Catholic women religious communities are active today in more than 100 countries.
