May 7 has always been special for the Daughters of Wisdom in the Philippines and this year was certainly not different. It is the day where we celebrate the Silver Jubilee of the Beatification of Blessed Marie Louise Trichet (of Jesus), first Daughter of Wisdom and Co-founder of the Congregation with St. Louis Marie de Montfort. Moreover, today, Sr. Elena Aying, DW makes her perpetual commitment to God in the Congregation, vowing to belong totally to Jesus, Incarnate Wisdom.
A New Call of Wisdom… A Response Filled with Passionate Love...
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Beatification of Marie Louise of Jesus is for us, Daughters of Wisdom, both a source of joy and gratitude but also a profound challenge. I am convinced that it was not by chance that the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Beatification coincided with the event of the General Chapter. The Beatification allowed many among us to discover the endearing face of the first Daughter of Wisdom. We discovered with our eyes and hearts, the passionate and daring woman she was, responding to an exceptional call to live a new form of religious life for the time…an apostolic religious life.
