Mini-series on Benedictines-Two: the new biography of Mother Marie Adele Garnier
Posted by Supertradmum
She wrote hundreds of letters in her lifetime and a biography of her has just been published, literally, hot off the press. She was a mystic, in the unitive way, in the same category at St. Teresa of Avila, or St. John of the Cross. Her time for canonization will come.
Here are two sections from letters of hers
She also wrote: "My very dear daughter, may the holy and adorable will of God be our only satisfaction and joy! In this will we are assured of finding the true good, that alone is able to satisfy our love. Everything else merits not even a desire, nor any regret. Never forget this.'"
Here is a review of the book and more information, and there is more on the link above. The Vatican Press published the book. It is available now.
