progBy making themselves available to care for the victims of the cholera and smallpox epidemics, the Sisters began to win over the love and admiration of those who were wealthy and poor alike.  Despite the “perplexities of the times”, the Sisters desired to live their lives meaningfully for God and for others.  

Mother Frances continued to guide the life of the Sisters. She looked for an appropriate priest to guide the small community and established a contemplative branch of the young Congregation.  After building a connection with Bishop Laurent, she tried to turn the administration of the community over to Sister Maria.

For Silent Reflection and Journaling:

Is it challenging to read about the poverty of our first Sisters and Mother Frances’ conflict with Bishop Laurent over the strict requirements of poverty for the Sisters?  Why or why not?

How do the “perplexities” of our current times affect you?  What helps you to stay focused on service to God and others?
