On 6 December 2023, it will be 100 years since the death of Cardijn’s mother, Louise Van Dalen. Cardijn spoke about her many times and was obviously very close to her.
Today is the 120th anniversary of the death of Joseph Cardijn’s father, Henry, which means it’s also the 120th anniversary of Cardijn’s consecration of his life to the working class.
We’re still at the beginning of 2023 but I’ve already missed one big jocist anniversary – the 150th anniversary of the birth of St Therese of Lisieux, patron saint of the YCW – so time to get to work.
