Marguerite Bourgeoys: Woman of Contemplation and Compassion

Maureen MacIsaac, CND with members of leadership

The anniversary of Marguerite’s 400th birthday is drawing near! For many months now, sisters and associates in our Province have been very involved in so many ways recognizing and celebrating the 400th Anniversary of Marguerite’s birth.

We are very pleased to distribute the reprint and translation of the book Marguerite Bourgeoys: Woman of Contemplation and Compassion. Initially published by Sister Denise Lamarche in 2007, the book was inspired by the beautiful statue of Marguerite with a sheaf of wheat at Maison Saint-Gabriel.

Sister Denise looks at the work created by the Artisans sculpteurs de Lanaudière through the lens of Marguerite’s story and mission. She calls upon all our senses and guides us in prayerful reflection about our charism. Her words bring the statue to life and, far beyond the work, we are invited to contemplate Marguerite’s heart and soul.

Marguerite Bourgeoys: Woman of Contemplation and Compassion is a treasure; enjoy your time with Marguerite!
