Life of REV. Mother Saint Joseph, Foundress of the Congregation of Sisters of St. Joseph of Bordeaux (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Life of Rev. Mother Saint Joseph, Foundress of the Congregation of Sisters of St. Joseph of Bordeaux I at Once refused her request; but the good Mo ther insisted so urgently on my compliance that I was fdrced to yield to her wish. I made all possible preparation, not, however, without much uneasiness as to the consequences. At the open ing of the retreat, after my first sermon, which was listened to with great attention, I returned to my room well satisfied with my success. In a few moments the Mother followed me, and, without any ceremony, said Father, if you con tinne the retreat in this style, all the fruit is lost. Put aside your ﬂowery sermons; we are not lite rati, but simple religious, assembled to occupy our minds with the affairs Of our salvation. It is necessary only to set before us pious truths which 'will raise our hearts to God, remind us of our duties, know our defects, and correct them.
