Transcript

  1. Maria DomenicaMazzarelo<br />Brenda CARRILLO 4 TH GRADE<br />
  2. She was born in Mornese, Alessandria, Italy<br />Died: May 14, 1881, Mornese<br />
  3. Wherever she want the village children were drawn to her like a magnet, eager to hear her jokes and stories, or to ask her a multitude of questions.<br />She received the last rites of the Church and recovered, but the illness left her weak. The strength which had formerly sustained her in the fields was no more. Mary was now thin and frail; a shell of her formerly robust self.<br />
  4. When she was 23 a typhoid epidemic hit Mornese and villagers started rapidly dying. Soon her uncle and aunt were taken ill and Mary volunteered to care for them and their many children<br />
  5. The skills which she learned in her youth she was later able to pass onto those who would come after her.<br />
  6. In 1867, after meeting with them and receiving the Daughter’s enthusiastic response to his proposal, Don Bosco drew up their first rule of life. A source of the community’s good spirit, sense of humor, optimism and charity, Mary Mazzarello was a natural choice as the first superior, although she did all that she could to not accept the title. Eventually obedience won out and she was the first Mother of the young community at age thirty, albeit in an informal sense.<br />
  7. Mary was to become the co-foundress of a religious order to care for young girls, just as the Salesian priest and brothers cared for young boys.<br />
  8. The Daughters of Mary Help of Christians were officially founded in 1872.<br />
