Many of the same values motivated the missions of Louise de Marillac and Elizabeth Seton. Both had a deep respect for human dignity and saw Jesus in the people they served. They were attuned to God’s presence in their lives and carried out his will as they discerned it. They relied on providence and were daughters of the Church, focusing on the events of the liturgical year and their experience of God in the eucharist. Their own suffering made them acutely aware of the paschal mystery, and they encouraged others to participate in it. Their “hunger for the Word of God,” their devotion to Mary, and their view of eternity are also discussed in this article.
