St. Emily de Rodat

St. Emily (Emilie) devoted the majority of her life to the service of Christ. At only age 16 while visiting the poor, women shared with her that they had noone to teach their children or tell them about God. She told the women to send the children to her and she would be their teacher. Like many others who begin a religious work, Emily worked with three friends and founded a religious congrigation now known as the Sisters of the Holy Family of St. Emilie. Her own life of devotion to Christ meant that she never had a husband or children herself and is a patron saint for single laywomen.

Many others joined her congregation and their work grew to include ministry to orphans, prisinors, prostitutes and the houmebound. She helped to establish 38 institutions devoted entirely to caring for unfortunate women and older persons. In images and medal Emily is shown in her nun's habit because it was in this vocation that she was able to help so many unfortunate people. Her kindness and lifetime devotion show us that when one person lives a life of faith, the love of God inspires them to bless the multitudes of less fortunate people.

St. Emily de Vialar

St. Emily was born during the anti-Catholic time following the French Revolution. Her mother had her baptized in secret, and from a young age Emily had a strong desire to enter religious life. Up to age 35 her desire was unrealized, but she still lived a quiet life of prayer and chastity. Then, after she received a large inheritance from her grandfather, Emily and three companions set up their own religious house.

She named the religious institution the "Sisters of St. Joseph of the Apparition" with the desire to bring Christ into the world thought missionary outreach to the poor with a special concern for women. The apparition mentioned in the name of her order refers to the Angle Gabriel's appearance to St. Joseph telling his to flee this Mary and Jesus to Egypt. She helped to establish 38 institutions devoted to caring for the sick, unfortunate women and older persons.

Virtually all images of her depict her in the religious habit of the order she founded. A quote from her writings which says much about her fervor and devotion is: "Since God does so much for me, what could I not do for Him?"
