Marie Madeleine

A Woman of our time

Marie Madeleine is a woman for our time; a French woman of inspiration and courage. She was ... daughter, sister, friend, wife, widow and mother, and ultimately a religious sister and foundress. Her husband, Joseph died before their child Eugène was born and Marie Madeleine faced the future on her own. She did so coura-geously and not only did she bring up their child, Eugène, she founded a group of Catholic sisters known as the Faithful Companions of Jesus. Her story is remarkable!
