Blessed Emilie Tavernier Gamelin
(Foundress of the sisters of providence)
FEAR NOTHING, I say to you my daughters, ‘FEAR NOTHING’, as long as you are surrounded by the poor, in the reality of our world today.
Providence would be your help as well as your faithful treasurer. Believe me, you will lack nothing”. I urge you to learn how to forget all that causes pain, anxiety, and distress. Finding ways of being in solidarity with the lowly, the poor, the marginalized and especially those affected.
In the same way, I encourage you to learn to discover possible ways to face the challenges of everyday life; the joys; sufferings; grief and loneliness which I lay down for you.
