‘My struggles transformed into ardent charity’
Pauline showed deep concern for the needs within her local community, and wanted to help poor communities in mission countries. She established a network of solidarity with inspiration from heaven: the Propagation of the Faith. Every missionary disciple cares about the needs of their loved ones and of the whole human family.
This is the love that God places in our hearts, a fraternal and universal charity. Let us pray to develop such charity.

Pauline Jaricot Prayer
God our Father,
we give thanks for your servant,
Blessed Pauline Jaricot, who,
through her commitment to the Gospel
and passion for mission,
began the work of Missio.
Despite carrying many crosses,
she never closed her heart
to the needs of the poor.
Following the example of your Son,
fortified by a life of prayer
and nourished by the Eucharist,
she helped to build your Kingdom
of justice and mercy.
May we, like Blessed Pauline, share our faith humbly and charitably,
and through prayer and action,
work together to make your love known
to all of creation.
Grant through her intercession
the favour I now ask of you…
(here make your petition). Amen.
