Venerable Pauline Jaricot

Pauline Marie Jaricot was born in Lyon on July 22nd 1799 to a profoundly religious family of silk merchants. Her entire life was given completely to God and her Holy Mother, the church. From her conversion at the age of 16, she devoted herself to a life of prayer and as a contemplative wrote many great works including The infinite Love of the Divine Eucharist.

Had Pauline not been withdrawn from the activity of the world she would never have fully understood the importance and necessity of prayer. However, having given up the world, she dedicated herself to works of charity. She found that to serve the poor and afflicted was to serve Christ himself, thus she rushed to help the unfortunate. Sharing her time between helping others and her life of prayer, she soon realized that to truly help others, she must bring them to God.

The French Revolution had wrought havoc and destruction to the missionary effort. The entire attitude of the church towards the mission was undermined. There were no viable initiatives or collections to help the missions. Pauline prayed much on this and had a sudden inspiration, thus The Association of the Propagation of the Faith was born from God, for her to spread across the world.


Part IV

Venerable Pauline Jaricot

Pauline’s apostolic soul longed to bring the knowledge and love of Christ to the whole world. Never did she cease to sing the glory of God and give him thanks. She says Receive us in thy embrace as we are, and give us all that thou hath, so that disappearing in thee, an ocean of love and perfections, nothing will remain of us any longer but thyself wherein we are hidden.
