Blessed Marie Louise Trichet, Co-founder of the Daughters of Wisdom, 1703. Feast Day: May 7

In addition to founding this congregation of women, she was the administrator of the hospital and "Poor House" in Poitiers, France. A businesswoman by necessity rather than by choice, several new foundations found her confronting administrators and sometimes even bishops, contract in hand, to save the original nature of an apostolic congregation of universal dimensions.
