Scripture:

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11

The healing oil is dedicated to St Eugene Mazenod a French Catholic priest. Mazenod founded the congregation of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate. Initially focused on rebuilding the Church in France after the Revolution, their work soon spread, particularly to Canada. Mazenod was appointed Bishop of Marseille in 1837, and Archbishop in 1851. And was considered a patron saint for families in difficulty.

His Early Life

Charles Joseph Eugene de Mazenod’s childhood taught him that money cannot solve all problems. Although his family was wealthy, they were forced to flee France during the French Revolution, leaving all of their possessions behind. It was 1790, and Charles was just 8 years old. His father had been a politician but was forced to become a tradesman in Italy, where they had sought refuge, and the family was very poor. They moved from city to city, making it difficult for Charles to have a good education, other than what was provided by one priest in Venice.

Charles spent the rest of his childhood in Italy, returning to France when he was 20. His parents had separated, and his mother determined to regain the family’s lost wealth. She wanted her son to marry a rich girl whose family could help them.

The education Charles had received in Venice had included religious instruction, and the young man began to look at France in a new way. The Catholic Church in his native country had suffered a great deal during the Revolution. He was concerned by this. Although his mother upset, Charles decided to become a priest in order to help the Church in France rebuild and to help his fellow French citizens. In 1811 he ordained a priest in Paris.

The young priest’s uncle was bishop of the Diocese of Marseilles, and Father de Mazenod helped his uncle rebuild the diocese after the damage of the Revolution. In 1832, he named auxiliary bishop to be of greater help, and five years later he appointed Bishop of Marseilles. As bishop there he improved seminary training and encouraged priests to live truly holy lives.

St Eugene’s Death

He dies on 21 May 1861 at Marseille, France, because of cancer. And on 12th of December 1936, his body exhumed and found to be intact. Part of his heart venerated at Blessed Sacrament Chapel at the Oblate-owned Lourdes. Grotto of the Southwest in San Antonio, Texas, USA.
