In 1818 a young French lay woman, Pauline Marie Jaricot, founded the Association for the Propagation of the Faith, officially recognized on 3 May 1822. Pauline is "the foundress of the largest aid agency for the missions in the entire history of the Catholic Church," which later became the Society for the Propagation of the Faith and was conferred the title "Pontifical" by Pius XI in 1922. — Vatican website

She also was the foundress of the Association of the Living Rosary. She died on January 9, 1862 and was declared venerable on February 25, 1963.

The Sixteenth Day of Christmas

I'm a member of the Universal Living Rosary Association and pray my dedicated decade of the rosary, "the Crucifixion," every day for the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and in Honor of St. Philomena. This pious exercise, along with the daily rosary, is very beneficial spiritually and a great weapon against evil.

I'm very aware of this beautiful and informative site and say my dedicated decade of the rosary, "the Crucifixion," every day. I also find the ULRA's publication, "Dedicated Decades," a godsend and an inspiration.

Thank you heartily for your dedication to the ULRA and to the promotion of its primary intentions: "The Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary" and "The Honor of St. Philomena."
