Headline: EUROPE FRANCE – Towards Mission Sunday – the Superior of the MEP: Pauline Jaricot and Therese of Lisieux, examples of missionary life
Rome – The figure of Venerable Pauline Jaricot “will be able to help the baptized to grow stronger in the missionary path through the network of sharing material offerings and sharing prayer. Today each of us is called to follow this example: to be missionaries by sharing what we have, by sharing our testimonies of life, and above all, by giving ourselves entirely to the Lord because it is there that we find the source and the basis of our missionary enthusiasm. This is a way of happiness, hope and trust, especially in such a difficult period that our planet is going through”. This is what Father Gilles Reithinger, Superior General of the Congregation of Foreign Missions of Paris , told Agenzia Fides, focusing, in view of World Mission Day, on the figure of Venerable Pauline Jaricot , foundress of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith, today one of the four Pontifical Mission Societies. “As priests of the Society of Foreign Missions of Paris we are very grateful and we will soon give thanks for the Beatification of Venerable Pauline Jaricot, after the recognition of the miracle attributed to her”.
