“I am not one who was, ‘innocent and holy’ throughout my life, and my family would say I still have a long way to go.  It is therefore sometimes difficult for me to relate to those who were and are.  Yet, I’m grateful to them for showing me that this life may still be possible, even for me.”    Bl. Louise of Savoy, Poor Clares
