Marie was canonized on May 15th, 2022 by Pope Francis.
In 2015 a little girl called Angel Marie Rivier Gegamo from the Philippines was cured through the intercessions of Marie Rivier.
Marie Rivier herself, as a young child, was cured by Mary’s intercession. During her life time she obtained everything through Mary’s intercession.
Let us intercede for our own lives and for others.
