Soulfire
the story of collaboration.
Dedicated to
The memory of Sister Patrice Murray,
Who, in 2003, asked me to write about
Rosalie Rendu.
Here’s to you, Sister Patrice, who believed
in me as no other friend ever has believed
in me and my talents.
Sister Patrice Murray, gone to God in 2009,
this is in your honor.
-Alma/gh
This is the
story of fire,
that settles in the
soul, and will not
leave.
This is the
story of
Soulfire.
Meet a Daughter of Charity
of St. Vincent de Paul.
Meet a
Daughter
of Charity
on
fire.
Meet:
“Soulfire” S!ter Rosalie Rendu
How did you do it,
Sister Rosalie?
How did you make it
happen--
The chid care center,
The clinic,
The pharmacy,
The school,
The orphanage,
The youth club
How did you make it
happen?
Who were you, Sister
Rosalie Rendu?
Just who were you?
“No one, just a simple
Daughter of Charity,”
she would say, “No one
else.”
But the power you had,
such force, such
reach--
“Not me,”
she would say,
“all of us, all of us.”
It is we the people
who help the people:
We Daughters of Charity,
We the Vincent de Paul Society,
We the Ladies of Charity.
It is We who serve; it is we
who support; it is we who
reach.
It is all of us together
and none of us apart.
Collaboration
is
everything!
12
“Our service began
simply”
Rosalie would say...
“There were only
two or three sisters
in the beginning...
Yet...”
We have built a
Community of Service.
All of us together
is ever so much
stronger than any
one of us apart.
WE are
an Army of Charity
reaching everywhere,
across the barricades,
within the houses,
down the streets,
Bringing the wealth
of the rich
to help and become the
Hope of the Poor.
