The impact of Fr. Marie-Eugene’s beatification

For Teresa Hawes, the upcoming beatification of Venerable Father Marie-Eugene of the Child Jesus is an opportunity to spread his teachings about the importance of an intimate relationship with God and the role of the Blessed Mother.
“It’s a joyful confirmation that his teaching is a sure path to union with God,” she said.
