Saint Louise de Marillac
1591 - 1660
Feast Day -- March 15
Saint Louise de Marillac lived in France. After her husband died, she was very sad. She met St. Vincent de Paul, who became a friend. They started the Daughters of Charity, a group of nuns that worked in hospitals, homes, prisons and during wars. Saint Louise wanted to share God's love by helping the poor and the sick. There are still over 25,000 Daughters of Charity who help the poor all over the world.
Patron of disappointing children, loss of parents, and social workers. Saint Louise went to school at the royal monastery of Poissy near Paris.
Dear God, help us to trust in your guidance for our loves, just as Saint Louise did. Amen.
