May 4 - Blessed Marie Leonie Paradis

 

She was an only child and when she wanted to enter a convent her parents, although very Catholic, attempted to dissuade her. They finally accepted their daughter’s decision. She entered the Congregation of the Holy Cross but then she felt called to found a new Congregation, that of Little Sisters of the Holy Family, whose ministry is to support priests.

They say Leonie worked very hard although she was in poor health. What difficulty would you like to overcome today?
