“Vincentian Marian Youth is a living example of how patience, Providence, and perseverance can all come together for the common good. Think of the patience St. Catherine Laboure showed throughout her life. After having had the singular honor of a vision and dialogue with Our Lady, St. Catherine labored for decades in a ministry of service to the elderly, living in quiet obscurity. Reflect on how the Providence of God has transformed Vincentian Marian Youth, first known as the “Children of Mary” in Europe, to an international organization witnessing to the Church and our charism on almost every continent in numerous countries. Give thanks for the perseverance of so many past members and moderators of the VMY who first inspired and motivated you to become involved in this great work of God.” – Former Superior General Fr. G. Gregory Gay, C.M.

A historical example

“For young girls and needy mothers, Rosalie soon organized courses in sewing and embroidering. She later founded a day-care center and a nursery school where working mothers could have their children cared for during the day. For these same people, she founded [associations of the] the Children of Mary with a branch for Christian mothers and a branch dedicated to Our Lady of Good Counsel.” – Former Superior General Fr. Robert Maloney, C.M., in Five Faces of Rosalie Rendu
