    St. Louise,
    Since I was studying at the school managed by the Daughter's of Charity, I always study your life that we never failed a year without disuccing your works. I was just knowing you by mind but not byheart.

    As I've matured I realized that your works and compassion for the poor is agreat inspiration for all people specially me. Thank you for enlightening me and being such a good inspiration with all your generous works. I pray that my children will do the same goodness to the poor as I would introduce you to them.

    St, Louise de Marillac, Pray fo us!

    There is no doubt that St. Louise de Marillac has her sisters even at this minute out there helping all those effected by troubling events of Japan. Her charity should move us to help as well. God bless all.

    I'd never heard of St Louise until having RCIA & doing the "Journey of Faith" lessons, one task was to research the Saint on my birthday, which just happens to be St Louise :) found it real interesting also that she is the patron saint of social workers as im doing mediation courses & people always suggest i should be a social worker or nun! :)
