Foundation of the Congregation of Jesus and Mary

(Eudists) – March 25th 1643

Passing on the torch!

With all my will, I abandon myself to the incomprehensible love of Jesus and Mary who gave me their loving Heart in a special way. United with this love, I give this same Heart, as it is something which belongs to me and which I can use for the glory of my God, to the little Congregation of Jesus and Mary. I leave it to be the inheritance, the treasure, the principal guide, the heart, the life and the model of the true children of this Congregation.
