Mother Mary of Jesus
  • To wish what God wishes, when He wishes, as much as He wishes, — that is what ought to be the preoccupation of our lives.1

Our history - Origin
 

She was a wife and mother of four children.
She had all she needed
for an easy and comfortable life.

But one day Emilie d’Oultremont d’Hooghvorst
saw her life turned upside down
by a profound experience of God.

Deeply touched by the
tender and passionate love of God for the world,
Emilie realized that this love was often ignored and rejected.
From this she understood that the direction of her life
was going to change forever.

As a widow at the age of 29, Emilie continued the search
that would eventually lead her to found  a religious congregation.
The Sisters of Marie Reparatrice/Mary Reparatrix
were founded in Strasbourg, France in 1857.
