My attendance at Ground breaking Sessions at UN “Affordable Housing and Social Protection”
My visit to New York from the 8th to the 15th of February was a most joyful and privileged experience, and one in which as a Daughter of Wisdom, I felt a great sense of pride. The main reason for my visit was to attend sessions at the UN organised by the Commission for Social Development, having as its priority theme ”Affordable Housing and Social Protection”. What was most remarkable about this event, was that in the 75 years that the United Nations has been in existence, it is the first time that homelessness has been on the agenda! And what is wonderful about this historic breakthrough is that UNANIMA International and Sophia Housing, spearheaded by Jean Quinn, were very much at the forefront of bringing this about.
Whilst attending the sessions as an observer over a two day period, I also had the great pleasure of being invited to the presentation of the annual UNANIMA Woman of Courage Award being made to Mary McAleese, former President of Ireland.
Animated by our Malagasy sisters, this day was filled with celebrations.

As we conclude the presentation of the fulfillment of our mission during this 6-year mandate in this year of the 25th anniversary of the Beatification of Marie Louise of Jesus, one sentence springs forth in our hearts:
“I am quite content with the state that God has ordained for me.”
At the invitation of the General Council, a group of younger Sisters of the Congregation of the Daughters of Wisdom had the joy to meet each other in Paris. Coming from different Entities of the Congregation: Canada, United-States, France, Great Britain and Ireland, India, Indonesia, Italy, Madagascar, Malawi, Maria Luisa, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, DR. Congo and Haiti, we reflected and shared together our thoughts for the next Chapter.
