Here in Rome, we are living among our Notre Dame Sisters from many countries. All the provinces around the world try to support the activities of our Generalate by serving for a time in our Mother House, so I am among, my Korean, Indian, Brazilian, German, and American Sisters at the moment.
When St. Julie Billiart was suffering greatly the turmoil of the French Revolution, God gave her a vision in which she saw a cross surrounded by many religious Sisters in various habits. She heard: “Behold these spiritual daughters whom I give you in an Institute marked by the cross.” This makes a Coesfeld Notre Dame, such as myself, think that perhaps we also were in St. Julie’s vision, though we came into existence some forty years after her death.
