A novelty…

A novelty… We are happy to offer you a new novena created by Sister Diane Beauregard. Congratulations Sister Diane for your oil painting on canvas and for the inspiring text. You can obtain this novelty at the mausoleum or by contacting the Elizabeth-Bergeron Center. It is also on our website.

Explanation of the two symbols

Why did I paint the Holy Family on the dress of Sister Elizabeth Bergeron’s, also known as Mother St. Joseph? Her nun's name already gives us an answer. St. Joseph was the father of Jesus and the husband of Mary. For Elizabeth Bergeron, the family plays a vital role in society. Woman of great kindness, her smile bears witness to her tenderness. During her lifetime, she was close to the children and their parents, especially those who had great needs. Like St. Joseph, she continues her work as a protector to those who pray and ask her for favors.

Why this green stem with two leaves? During the exhumation of Elizabeth in 1968, an upright stem was growing close to her heart near her left hand, while she was six feet underground. Elizabeth accepted, in 1877, to be a fragile instrument in the hands of God by founding a community of religious teachers, even though she had not had the chance to learn to write. This plant, growing in the earth in her hands, still inspires me today. And you?

In communion with all those who have confidence in the Venerable Elizabeth Bergeron, let us continue to pray that her Cause of Beatification will advance, if this is the will of God!

I would like to remind you of the importance of sharing the favors obtained through her intercession.
