We began our prayer life with the words of Father Theodore.
Directions given to the sisters of the Holy Land. book 5 (page85)
You must no longer have any other thought
than the glory of God,
the hope of Israel,
the fulfilment of the promises,
the reign of Jesus Christ.

What where Father Theodore reaction faced with this situation and how was he to help the sister to profit by their experience?
Charity is the indestructible cement which must unite the first stones of the building of Sion.
