POETRY: THE GOOD LADY

(The original is French)

Have you heard of the good lady who lived three centuries ago?
Have you heard of the good lady who from a young age possessed great virtues?
Have you heard of the good lady who from her childhood had an unwavering faith?

That good lady who during her life burned with a boundless love for the poorest?
That good lady who always left traces of admiration and holiness wherever she went?
That good lady who knew how to console and make happy those who were in despair of life?
That good lady who lived true charity without distinction?
This good lady you have certainly heard of her.
This good lady is the social apostle of charity, she is our mother Marie POUSSEPIN.

Yes, Mother, we dedicate this poem to you to say thank you for always being at our side through your intercession and prayers.
We dedicate this poem to you to tell you that your life on earth has not been futile but that it has borne good fruit.
We dedicate this poem to you to tell you that we love you with an eternal love and that you love us with an unlimited love.
We dedicate this poem to you to tell you that you were the best lady that ever lived and that the angels whisper this in heaven.
We dedicate this poem to you to tell you that we can always count on you, our mother.

POEM: DOMINICAN LAITY OF THE PRESENTATION

(The original is French)
Marie, like the Mother of Jesus, you are
(Amour) Love

Organized.
Unique in your type
Social, you are an eminent
Servant of the

(Infatigable) Tireless yet
Noble.

HYMN IN HONOR OF MARIE POUSSEPIN 

(The original is French)
I. Marie Poussepin, woman of great hope
Hope that keeps us alive
Hope that brings us back to life
Hope that gives joy
Hope whose ardor safeguards us from selfishness
And leads us to the happiness of charity
Hope that was growing in Marie Poussepin

II. Hoping against all hope
Facing the signs of the times
The benevolent Holy Spirit
Capture your look of struggle

III. To the sick you said:
There will be days full of life.
To the hungry you said:
Times of abundance are coming.
In the face of the ignorance of young girls, you exclaimed:
The days of darkness are over.

IV. From the humble heart that was born in Dourdan
Grew a great trust
Leading to greater happiness
Of a life so blessed

V. The hope of a future neither possible, nor reasonable but certain;
The hope that gives you a share in the life of heaven, for Jesus has opened it for you
Marie Poussepin's hope could only be God himself.

VI. Marie Poussepin, the Blessed
Marie Poussepin, the happiest one
Marie Poussepin, the joyful chosen one
Of a Blessed God.

VII. Marie Poussepin, you are blessed
For the kingdom of heaven is yours.
Marie Poussepin you are blessed
For you are comforted.
Marie Poussepin, you are blessed
For, you are with God and everything has been accomplished.
