Hope and Joy is our daily bread.
In November 16, 1858 Father Theodore come for a visit. There was an urgent need for him to do so in view of the importance of the problems and Fathers Mary absence in Franc where he was very ill. He said that he would prefer to close the house in Jerusalem then to allow there a Spirit which was not a faithful reproduction of the early spirit of Sion. (This early spirit of Sion is found in personal and community prayer and in lived charity with one another.) Father Theodore insisted that our community must consist of holy and obedient souls.
