On February 2, 2017,
on the Feast of the Presentation of Jesus at the Temple,
Sister Edwige of Blauvac became 104 years.

As her Abbess wrote: “She wonders what happened to her because it’s so far beyond her understanding… But she finds it’s not bad !!!”

Sister Edwige Talagrand was born on February 02, 1913 in St Laurent les Bains (France). She entered the monastery on March 11, 1941 and made her solemn profession in 1946.

She is the Venerable Senior of our Order with Father Bernard de Give, of Scourmont, who will be 104 years in a few months… We already wish him a happy birthday!


During the year, we will also celebrate the hundred-first birthday of

Father Joseph Benedict Donnelly of Guadalupe
(born on October 03, 1916 and entered the monastery on January 22, 1965)

and we will celebrate the one hundreth birthday of

Sister Casimir Hatanaka of Tenshien
(born on March 18, 1917 and entered the monastery on April, 27 1935)

We thank
our brothers and sisters
for their witness and their fidelity!
