France: Suriauville, June 2015

Unforgettable !

Over the years, many Infant Jesus Sisters have gone on pilgrimage following in the footsteps of Nicolas Barré.

This is the first time that a group of sisters and laity from the different Provinces of Asia went to pray in Mother Mathilde’s native village.   The mayor,  parish priest and local people  joined in giving them a wonderful welcome in Suriauville.   Many people living there were overjoyed and amazed to learn of little Marie Justine’s  extraordinary life.  Mass was celebrated by  Mother Mathilde’s great grandnephew who is himself a missionary in Japan.
