MARIE RIVIER: A Face to discover

A Testimony

Part VI



«I was a high school student of St. Peter’s College of  Toril (1979 -1983) when I came to know Mother Rivier thru her daughters, the Sisters of the Presentation of Mary. Her life story had inspired me in loving and serving the Lord more, hence, embracing a life of total consecration to God and a life of service to His people as a Carmelite religious and priest for almost three decades now. As I trace and reminisce my vocation story, I will always be grateful to Blessed  Marie Rivier and the PM Sisters for they had been very much part of my sacred love story with the Lord. And from then on, in everything I do, I do it “all for God, all through His holy love”.





I knew Blessed Anne-Marie Rivier since I was 1st-year high school and in knowing her, my life as a youth changed. Her story inspired me to join the Marie Rivier Young Evangelizers (MRYE) and became an active member for 3 years. We taught children in the public schools about God through Bible stories and the Gospel. We make Jesus Christ known and loved. Mother Rivier’s compassion and her faithfulness to the Blessed Mother Mary, Mo. Rivier taught me to put Christ as the center of my faith. In Him nothing is impossible.

Blessed Marie Rivier continues to guide me to become more faithful, passionate, and committed to Christ. She has been one of my guides and companion in times of difficulties in my life.




«Blessed Anne-Marie Rivier – A woman of faith. The time when I knew Marie Rivier and became an MRA, my life had changed. My eagerness to pray to our Lord Jesus Christ is burning just as Marie Rivier’s zeal for being a pious woman. As a teacher,  Marie Rivier’s example really helped me to treat my learners the way St. Joseph treated the Child Jesus. Marie Rivier also helped me to be zealous in correcting my learners of their faults and leading them to what is best. «Let us all bring the children to paradise» these words of Marie Rivier truly pushed me to become a better mentor, to be amiable in the eyes of our Lord Jesus.

I thank God for sharing the life and words of Marie Rivier. As part of the Rivier Family,  we can do even more good if we keep prayer a part of our daily lives, like Marie Rivier.
