Pauline Marie Jaricot,
Victim Soul of Jesus Christ, pray for us!

Almighty and merciful God, Who has chosen a humble virgin, Marie Pauline of Jesus Christ, the poor one of Mary, to found the great Catholic works of the Propagation of the Faith and the Living Rosary, and Who has wished in the midst of humiliations, trials and persecutions to purify her works, deign to hasten the day when Holy Mother the Church will publicly recognize her saintly life. We pray that by her example of patience and love for the Cross, her life-time prayer may be realized: the Universal propagation of the Faith in all its Purity.

Closing a Year of Celebrating a Legacy

 

Wednesday, January 9, 2013, marks the close of the yearlong celebration of the 150th anniversary of the death of Venerable Pauline Jaricot, founder of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith.  Most appropriately, events to mark that date will take place in Lyons, France, hometown of the founder of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith.

Pope Benedict XVI appointed Cardinal Paul Poupard, president emeritus of the Pontifical Council for Culture, as his special envoy for these celebrations.  And Father Andrew Small, OMI, National Director of the Pontifical Mission Societies in the United States, made the trip to Lyons, to be there as well.

The program in Lyons on January 9 – which will be covered on this website – includes a visit to Maison de Lorette, which Pauline made the center of her work after founding the Society, as well as Rosary and Adoration at St. Nizier Church, where Pauline heard Abbé Jean-Wendel Würtz give the sermon which she always referred to as the occasion of her conversion.  At St. Nizier, where she is buried, Archbishop Salvatore Rino Fisichella, President of the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelization in Rome, will offer a presentation, “Pauline Jaricot and the New Evangelization.”  The celebration concludes with the Mass, where the main celebrant will be Cardinal Poupard; our National Director Father Andrew will be among the concelebrants, as will Father Perre-Yves Pecqueux, CJM, National Director of the Pontifical Mission Societies in France.

Check back on the pages that follow for reports on all the events, and to read as well about the life and legacy of this “hero” for the Missions who wished only to “love without measure...without end.”
