My dear Father Guigues, I have just left the altar where I offered the holy sacrifice in thanksgiving for the happy conclusion to the affair that means so much to us. Father Vincens is bringing you the copy of the letter the Bishop of Grenoble has just written me. See how the Master of hearts leads them as he wishes and join me in praising the Lord.
Letter to Bruno Guigues, 3 September 1834, EO VIII n 485
Yvon Beaudoin fills in the story and quotes the letter from the Bishop:
Father Dupuy, on becoming pastor of N.-D. de l’Osier had, it seems, set about forming a community of diocesan priests to serve the Sanctuary. When the Founder understood what was going on, he wrote to explain the situation to Bishop Bruillard on August 8. 1834.
The latter replied on August 30: I will owe my good fortune to an imprudence on the part of M. Dupuy. I wanted missionaries of local origin, and now I will have men who come to me from the heart of Provence. If I had had some from Dauphiné, they would have needed a period of formation and it would have been necessary to see the adoption of a Rule. Now I will have men already tried and accustomed to a Rule approved by the Sovereign Pontiff …. In all truth, my dear Sir, far from being put out by M. Dupuy. I am tempted to exclaim: Felix culpa! Yes, I accept your dear children
