“The Unbelievably Generous Excess of the Love of God”

WITH WISDOM LET US BE PROPHETS OF HOPE
Sr. Mary Chiodo, Daughter of Wisdom, United States
Friends of Wisdom came from 13 countries to walk together in the footsteps of Montfort and Marie Louise in France, July 16 to August 24, 2017. They came bringing the richness of their cultures and their journeys with Wisdom. They came seeking Wisdom. They came from their service to the poor. They came with a love of the Daughters of Wisdom with whom they collaborate in ministry. They brought their deep faith and prayer to our encounter with one another.
