Praise for Labouré

 
  • "Recently our Lord has been inviting me to recall His providence in my life and seeking a greater trust in His providence for the future.  The experience with Laboure always comes to mind as the most tangible and concrete experience of God's providence and the power of the Holy Spirit's guidance when facing many obstacles.  For this I am grateful and the fruit continues to reveal itself!"

    Sr. Faustina, Winter Class 2016,

    Most Reverend James D. Conley, Bishop of Lincoln, NE , Bishop,
  • "Those of us given the blessing of material gifts are called to share those gifts with others and there are many opportunities to do so. In the Gospel, at the the anointing at Bethany, a woman comes with an alabaster jar of perfumed oil, breaks the jar, and pours it on Our Lord's head. There were those present who thought it to be a waste. However, she gave it all without reservation. Those who enter into a religious vocation give completely of themselves and in the eyes of the world this can appear to be foolish or even a waste. A gift to the Labouré Society changes the direction of a life because it helps a person realize a dream that God has placed directly on their hearts. We were honored to have met Toni Garrett (Sister Josephine) and to have been able to help her realize this dream. We would encourage anyone of means to examine their gifts and help others realize their own dreams. 

    Rita and Lamar Hunt, Jr. ,
  • "...The ongoing support of Labouré with its mentors and accountability partners can give you the confidence that aspirants are not just pushed out the door with a manual but rather they are accompanied through the whole process. This is undoubtedly the reason why Labouré has had a nearly perfect success rate with the aspirants who join its program."
