The end of the First World War, the earth quake of 1916 which destroyed much of Rimini, the revolution of the after war with all the serious-painful consequences had demoralized the sisters in the Mother House because they were experiencing miserable financial conditions for the constant repairing of the facilities. Mother Luigia Fulvi, gifted with energetic, ardent personality tried to lift up the moral of those who were discouraged; she asked Pope Benedict XV some assistance to pay the most urgent debts. She prioritized all the financial agreements and situations in order to build up a common fund.

Without war there is no victory … I wish you a successful battle and unconquerable courage until death, so that in heaven you may place the crowns you have earned at the feet of Jesus.
Blessed Elisabetta Renzi
