This collection brings together a correspondence from Saint Chantal in which she explains for her contemporaries the role of the Visitandines as well as the main aspects of her faith.
Canonized in 1767, Jeanne-Françoise Frémiot, Baroness de Chantal, founded, with Saint-François de Sales, the order of the visitation of Sainte-Marie (cloistered and contemplative order). She was its first superior.
The financial autonomy of the order results from rules established by its founder. To be admitted, sisters must deposit a sum of money upon entering religious life. This “spiritual dowry” constitutes capital that the Visitandines make grow and that the sisters can bequeath or not to the order upon their death.
Saint Chantal is the patroness of criminals, forgotten people, mothers, widows and women bearing the first name of Jeanne, France, Francine or Chantal.
