For seven years, from 1939 to 1946, the Fraternity was therefore consecrated exclusively to the nomads and to Muslim populations. In July 1946, God made her understand by a sudden enlightenment, that the congregation must become universal, open to the whole world. At that time, Little Sister Magdeleine wrote to me: "I now understand that it is no longer possible to do as I thought in the beginning, that the whole congregation should live among nomads. But I think that the formation of a group who are for nomads must not only be planned, but achieved bit by bit... with little sisters who have received that calling, that vocation from God... "
