The brothers became concerned with their financial status and started leaving De La Salle and called De La Salle too rich to be able to relate.
De La Salle faced this wall by joining his Brothers in real poverty by donating his personal wealth to the community.
You must have faith brothers!
That’s easy for you to say because you’re rich.
Later on, De La Salle having many problems had decided to meditate in Parmenie and he talked to Sr. Louise. Then he got inspired to continue his mission, to persevere, and come back to the Brothers despite his different "walls".
And De La Salle, on his deathbed, with many Brothers around him and saying “But God was gentle, leading me from one commitment to another without me knowing in advance where the road would end." Then he died on April 7, 1719.
In his last days, De La Salle resigned as superior and devoted himself to teaching novices how to pray.
