The four nieces of Élise were present at this annual day for the first time. It was a joy for the whole parish.
All the news on Elise Bisschop
The opening of the cause was the long-awaited and welcomed event of 2017. The church of Mailly-le-Château was, for once, full, and it welcomed our Archbishop Hervé GIRAUD who came to celebrate the opening of Elise's cause.
We were welcomed in an Italian studio to make the recordings of the film on Élise in this beautiful language.
The "Nihil obstat" of Rome was again a great joy for the cause of Elise. The approval of the Congregation of Saints confirms the intuition common to all.
It's the turn to record the film on Élise in English! Since the beginning, translation into English has been a priority, this language being very widespread.
Obligatory passage: the consultation of the French bishops. Taking advantage of the plenary session of the French Episcopal Conference, Mgr. Hervé GIRAUD, our archbishop, was able to ask for their opinion.
We knew, thanks to Élise's letters, in what context she was linked to the Order of Saint Dominic. But what rule governed this group of patients of which she had just been part?
Back from Germany another meeting awaits us in Besançon. Previous research in Paris has produced nothing; Will there be some results in Besançon, in the Dominican archives found there?
Don't you think the name "Bisschop" sounds a bit Anglo-Saxon? All the more reason why the film also exists in German.
There has been a plan for some time to make audio recordings of Elise's texts for the visually impaired, and to be listened to during activities.
