PURPOSE OF THE PILGRIMAGE

Encouraged by the example of this great saint, who at the end of his life sent thirty-three penitents on pilgrimage to the sanctuary of Saumur with the intention:
 a) to obtain good missionaries from God
 b) to obtain the gift of wisdom in order to know, savor, and practice virtue; and to help others to do so
We want to carry out this pilgrimage as a Religious Family supported by the words of Saint Louis Marie when he said to God: “Remember your Congregation!”.

 

It is also a great occasion to renew our consecration of Marian slavery, asking Mary for the “indispensable help to prolong the Incarnation in all things”; not being “evasive to the missionary adventure”; and living in total abandonment to the will of God following her example: “Behold the handmaid of the Lord, let it be done to me according to your word”. (Lk 1:38)

 
PLACE OF THE PILGRIMAGE

The pilgrimage will take place in France, in the city of Saint Laurent-sur-Sèvre, where Saint Louis Marie died and where his remains rest, and from there we will pilgrimage to the Calvary of Pontchâteau.
