Saint Emily de Vialar was born in France, to the physician of Louis XVIII. She cared for the children and sick of the town, trying to repair the harm done by the French Revolution, while also caring for her widowed father.  In 1835, St. Emily and 26 women took religious vows, calling themselves the sisters of St. Joseph “of the Apparition.” (referring to The angel Gabriels’ telling St. Joseph to flee to Egypt) By the time St. Emily died, 42 foundations were established all over the world. Four years after her death her body was found incorrupt.
