To complement this celebration, here is a text written by Sister Marie-Ange St-André, one of her co-parishioners. It is entitled: A day for celebrating endless dreams and small hidden hopes.
No doubt, on January 15, 1914,
Léontine’s parents were very happy to welcome their oldest daughter,
full of life,
but they were far from imagining the durability of the thread of her life
which has been unwinding for a century.
Yes, Léontine is really fortunate,
still able to pray, to converse with interest and still wanting to be informed about the ins and outs of daily life:
“So, do you have any news?
Lower the side on my bed, I want to get up to replace this display
and these pictures, etc.”
Be happy and may you count still more steps
towards your many dreams and blessings, dear Léontine!
