‘Walk only after Him’
Pauline’s life ended with this precious advice to today’s missionary disciples:
‘Follow only Him, place your feet in his own footsteps, and you will see that the person who follows Jesus does not walk in darkness. Christ is the way, the truth and the life’.
Throughout her life Pauline walked in the light of the Gospel, and allowed herself to be led by the Spirit. Her advice to us is precious:
‘Let Jesus and the Spirit lead you, and in all the circumstances of your life be committed to the service of the Kingdom’.
Prompt: What issues in the world speak to my heart? What am I drawn to?
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.
