|Marie Rivier faced many obstacles in life. She was a cripple unable to walk in her childhood, but Blessed Mother Mary cured her. Everything she did was through Mary. Refused entry into a Community of Sisters, she determined to begin her own convent. She founded the Sisters of the Presentation of Mary during the French Revolution, when all the convents were being closed. She had a great love for the poor and was willing to give her own clothes to them. Over 500 orphans were given the love of a mother and a safe home with her. Her Sisters are now in 18 countries making Jesus Christ known and loved. Marie Rivier was beatified by Pope John Paul II May 23, 1982. This book has been written for grade school children. But anyone wanting to know Mother Rivier would profit by reading this short biography.|
