On 27 October 1793, Pierre Bienvenu Noailles was born in
“This is the story of an exceptional person, a saint, not the wax or porcelain type, but a living one, a man of flesh and blood, of plans and struggles. Something or someone greater than he, dwelt within him – God, Jesus Christ. The inner personal adventure he had embarked on became a collective one, the foundation of the Holy Family, whose branches would spread to the ends of the earth”
Today 218 years after his birth, one of his sons, a Lay Associate of the Holy Family, exclaims joyfully:
“The life of the Good Father still vibrates throughout his Family”
