  6. Thank you for sending this to us. My godfather and Uncle, James Fisher, fought in the Battle of the Ardennes and know of the love, support and courage of our sisters there.
    Sr. Emmanuel shows us how God’s time comes in every moment.
    May she intercede for us in these times of great peril of a different kind.

  7. I have visited Bastigne several times but I did not know the importance of the Notre Dame de Namur’s sisters actions during the Battle of the Buldge. An important part of history was written in these days by the Sisters. I wish this interesting article could be available in English.

    • How did the Sisters of Notre-Dame of Bastogne experience the Battle of the Ardennes, whose 75th anniversary is being commemorated?
      Since 1836 in Bastogne, the sisters were very distressed at the time of the Second World War and particularly during the winter of 1944-1945.
      Bastogne was liberated in September 1944 but the Germans unexpectantly relaunched their battle. The Offensive of the Ardennes started December 16, 1944. At that time, some Americans were occupying the school of the Sisters of Notre Dame in order to develop the cartography.
      Sunday, December 17, some parents came to look for their daughter because the western roads were still free. Two Sisters also left with some students for Marche.

      The next day, there was no longer any way out of town; the first bombshells fell on Bastogne. The school was to provide security for around 100 students. They were taken to the basement in the shelter of the red corridor (because of the red paving stones) where the Sisters had also taken refuge. In addition to the pupils, 600 to 700 civilians from Bastogne and the surrounding area were received in the shelter of the gray corridor (because of the gray walls). Next to an improvised oratory, there was a third shelter for the community known as the « boiler room cellar » where more than 50 Sisters remained grouped during the whole offensive.

      The living conditions in the cellars were very harsh: the corridors were crowded, the winter was harsh (sometimes less than -17 °) and the lack of hygiene was painful (no water, no electricity, health care problematic).

      December 20: At 12 :30, the sisters were assembled on the first floor of the convent having their mid-day meal. All of a sudden a shell exploded in the street. Sister Emmanuel Didier, the superior, went down to the cellar with all the sisters and made sure that everyone was present. She entered the Oratory which had been prepared the previous evening. The tabernacle had been placed in a picture window. They were scarcely settled when a shell fell on the sidewalk in front of the cave. Chips of the shell were thrown in all directions. One of them crossed the length of the basement, went through the plank behind the tabernacle, through the ciborium, emerging from the front of the tabernacle striking Sister Emmanuel in the carotid artery. The hole in her sweater gives witness to the shell. She died a short time later.
      Bastogne was a strategic place for the Americans. The reinforcements, the armored group “B” of the 10th Armored Division and the 101st Airborne Division of McAuliffe, arrived very quickly in the village. On December 22, the Germans delivered an ultimatum to General McAuliffe. But he refused to submit crying out: “Nuts!” The bombardments were terrible.

      The bombings were terrible on Christmas night and again on the night of December 29-30. The Sisters’ shelter was terribly threatened by the flames of the surrounding houses.

      A part of the students is finally evacuated to Neufchâteau on December 30 and 31. Tuesday, January 2, American truck drivers took teachers and students out of the martyred city in the direction of Arlon.
      Some Sisters remained in Bastogne with the refugees who no longer had shelter, and awaited the return of the other Sisters after the month of July.
      Many residents of Bastogne then expressed their gratitude to the Sisters of Notre-Dame.

  8. Journée mémorable à recommencer avec encore plus d’écoles représentées Merci aux organisatrices principales Monique-Marie et Marie-Thérèse

  9. Bonjour,

    Je m’appelle George Mullins et je suis un vétéran de la Seconde Guerre mondiale âgé de 95 ans. J’étais à l’école de Notre-Dame quand elle a été bombardée. Je cherchais une image du tabernacle, du ciboire et du gilet de laine abîmé de Sr Emmanuel à utiliser dans mon livre sur lequel je travaille.

    Oui, j’étais aussi en bas, dans la pièce voisine avec les blessés lorsque la bombe a frappé. J’aimerais beaucoup montrer ces éléments dans mon livre, et j’espère que vous pourrez m’aider à acquérir l’image / les images que je recherche.

    Je sais que de nombreuses années ont passé, mais j’espère que vous pourrez m’aider.

    Je donnerais bien sûr tout le crédit aux parties appropriées, mais je pense vraiment que ce sont des images importantes, non seulement pour mon livre, mais aussi pour que tout lecteur comprenne la tragédie qui s’est produite cette nuit-là à Bastogne.

    Merci d’avoir pris le temps de lire mon e-mail et j’espère avoir de vos nouvelles bientôt.

    Cordialement,

  10. Merci Marie de nous donner l’aperçu historique de Montessori. Dans le passé j’ai eu la chance de visiter l’école de Susan et Barbara. On expérimentat la paix et la joie.
    Avec tes explications j’ai découvert la face cachée de Montessori.
    Encore une fois, merci de tout coeur pour ton partage riche.

    • Merci sœur Honorine!
      En mars 2020, sr Marie-Rose et moi avons aussi eu la chance de visiter l’ancienne école Montessori de Sr Barbara et Sr Susan et de découvrir l’incroyable travail qu’elles ont fait avec les enfants.

  11. Some Sisters asked me to translate this article. The ENGLISH translation is probably not very good, but I hope it helps you to understand better what is written.

    Mrs. Martine Gilsoul [1] has just published a biography on the Italian doctor, Maria Montessori (1870-1952) ([ https://www.amazon.fr/Maria-Montessori-Une-service-lenfant/dp/2220097250 ]Maria Montessori, a life in the service of the child, Desclée de Brouwer, August 2020). Her subject is fascinating and the book very pleasant to read, rich and well documented.

    Internationally known for her pedagogy and the schools that bear her name, Maria Montessori led an uplifting life in the service of children at a time when they were not seen as a full person.

    In order to gather information, Martine Gilsoul came to consult the General Archives of the Sisters of Notre-Dame in Namur on several occasions, where we keep the important documents of the congregation. The main vocation of the Sisters of Notre-Dame de Namur being education, the sisters naturally took an interest in the « education system developed by Doctor Maria Montessori ».

    Sr. Marie Chantal(Elise Canivez, 1873-1934, author of The Pedagogical Ideas of Blessed Mother Julie Billiart) establishes in the elementary classes of the schools of the Sisters of Notre Dame new procedures for instruction according to the “Montessori system.” Thanks to her, a renewal movement in “infant schools” arose everywhere in Belgium. Her exceptional work attracts the praise of eminent teachers of pedagogical studies and reaching into France and Switzerland. The expertise of Sr. Marie Chantal was unique in the early childhood domain where she was an initiator and a pioneer.

    More recently, until 2018, two Sisters of Notre-Dame de Namur ran a Montessori school (Notre Dame Children’s Class) in Wenham, Massachusetts, in the United States. In an atmosphere of trust and respect, Sr. Susan Raymo and Sr. Barbara Beauchamp did a remarkable job in « creating a stimulating learning environment in order to keep the educational experience joyful and encouraging ».

    But what was Martine Gilsoul’s pleasant surprise to discover in the General Archives of the SND a doctoral thesis written in 1984 by an American sister, Sister Christina Marie Trudeau, on Maria Montessori in India! In « this wonderful country », Maria and her son, Mario, spent nine years there (between 1939 and 1946 and between 1947 and 1949) and trained thousands of teachers. « The success of the Montessori approach was such that even today India is full of Montessori schools. » Doctor of Educational Sciences, Sister Christina Trudeau went to India to visit the schools founded by Maria Montessori and had access to the materials used for teacher training as well as the unpublished Montessori manuscripts which are still in India. This makes her dissertation a document of historical significance and an unrivaled insight into Montessori philosophy as it unfolded during his years in India.

    As these few examples show, Maria Montessori’s pedagogical ideas have inspired and continue to inspire the Sisters of Notre Dame and the teachers who work in their schools all over the world.

    The General Archives of the Sisters of Notre-Dame keep the memory of their actions in the world and are a « living heritage” available to Sisters and people who are interested by the charism Notre-Dame..

    [1] Martine Gilsoul is a primary school teacher. After a Masters in Educational Sciences at the University of Liège, she worked for three years in a ZEP in Brussels. Trained in the Montessori method for 3-6 year olds at RomaTre University and for 0-3 year olds at Centro Nascita Montessori, she was director of a Montessori nursery in Rome. She has published several books in Italian on the Montessori method. She is the editorial director of MondoMontessori magazine and trainer.

    • Bonjour et merci pour votre message. Dom Minsart arrive à Namur en 1806 comme vicaire de la paroisse Saint-Jean l’Evangéliste; Julie Billiart quant à elle installe les premières Sœurs de Notre-Dame à Namur le 7 juillet 1807. En 1813, Dom Minsart est placé à la tête de la paroisse Saint-Loup, dont il embellit le sanctuaire. Nous n’avons pas d’informations sur cette paroisse dans nos archives.
      Au cours de son ministère, Nicolas-Joseph Minsart vient en aide à plusieurs communautés religieuses. Il est un ami de la première heure des Sœurs de Notre-Dame de Namur, dont il est le confesseur, le conseiller et parfois même l’agent d’affaires. C’est grâce à son intervention que Mère Julie Billiart et ses compagnes peuvent acquérir l’ancien hôtel des Comtes Quarré en décembre 1808.
