Description

St Elizabeth Ages healing oil

The St Elizabeth Ages healing oil dedicated to the 18th-century nun founder of the Daughters of the Cross.

Born at Le Blanc in France in 1773, Elizabeth was the daughter of Antoine Bichier, the Seigneur of Ages and a public official, and Marie Augier de Moussac.  Her grandfather was a politician. She spent much of her childhood at the convent at Poitiers.

In 1792, after the death of her father, Elizabeth took her mother to live in La Guimetière. Elizabeth dedicated herself to rebuilding the community.

Every night she gathered the parishioners for prayers and hymns. Elizabeth soon became aware of a nearby parish in a similar situation.  The priest, André-Hubert Fournet (who later became a saint), offered the Sacrifice of the Mass in a local barn. They quickly became friends, and together they reestablished religion in the area.

With Fr. André Fournet’s spiritual guidance and assistance, Elizabeth found her true vocation.

In 1806, she established a religious congregation of women to care for the sick and aged, for the education of children and to offer reparation for the blasphemies and sacrileges committed against the Most Blessed Sacrament during the French Revolution.

The congregation was officially recognized by the diocese in 1816 and named “Daughters of the Cross.”

In 1836, Elizabeth fell seriously ill. After ten days of intense suffering, she died on August 26.

Before she died, she opened over sixty convents under the rule of the Daughters of the Cross.

Tradition of oils

The tradition of anointing with sacred oil is very old indeed. The sick person applies the oil and blesses themselves.  The Irish blessings oils do not have miraculous power.  It is God who has the power to heal.  Applying the oil while praying is an important way for us to express our faith in God’s power. Moreover, by doing so we place our trust in God.

The oils come through prayer.  The oils are of therapeutic grade.
The bottles of oils going out are accompanied by a prayer card. In addition, they are personalised for the saint to whom the oil is dedicated to.
