"She is a figure of extraordinary importance for the history of the Church's mission. She had a deep trust in God and despite the sufferings and injustices she suffered, she never lost faith."
To coincide with World Mission month a new portrait by Austrian artist, Clemens Maria Fuchs, has been unveiled by the President of the Pontifical Mission Societies, Archbishop Giampietro Dal Toso, in Vienna on October 8th, 2020.
She is depicted with her left hand on the globe and the rosary in her right hand as a reminder that she founded the Work of the Propagation of Faith in 1822 and the Living Rosary in 1826.
The original remains in Vienna at the National Direction of Missio Austria.
We hope that Pauline Marie Jaricot will soon be beatified and that we will be able to call upon her officially for her intercession.
