On May 23, 1982, Mother Rivier was beatified in Rome by Pope John Paul II.
She was called the “Woman Apostle”. Her apostolic mission was to make Jesus Christ known and loved everywhere she went. She also had great devotion to Mary, Mother of the Church; she prayed everyday to Our Lady of Good Help, confiding her intentions, dreams, hopes and her concerns. Everything was done through the prayer of the rosary. May you continue to live the spirit of Blessed Marie Rivier, her passion and love for Jesus Christ and his Mother Mary.
At this time of the Pandemic, Pope Francis invites us to rediscover the beauty of praying the rosary. He says to “contemplate the face of Christ with the heart of Mary our Mother. ”Let us ask Mary to help us prevent the spread of Coronovirus that this great suffering may end.
HAIL HOLY QUEEN, mother of mercy; our life, our sweetness, and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn, then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy towards us. And after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. Amen
We would like to wish a happy feast day to all the Sisters of the Presentation of Mary, their Associates, students and consecrated laity and to all those who have been touched in one way or another by Blessed Marie Rivier. (FOUNDRESS OF THE SISTERS OF THE PRESENTATION OF MARY) We remain in profound communion with you as you continue to live the spirit of Blessed Marie Rivier, her passion and love for Jesus Christ and his Mother Mary, the Church, the Eucharist, the Cross, the Beatitudes, the Poor, the children and the youth. May you continue to make Jesus Christ known and loved in your milieu.
