Following the Way of Venerable Servant of God,

On her path of Life and path of Faith


Places along the way

In our search for her spiritual itinerary—her “Stations of Faith”—we discover:

A child who gave to God the first place in her daily life

From this developed the burning desire:
“To better know God and to do what pleases Him.”

In her persistent “Why?”:
She encountered the Mystery of the Cross.

With her First Holy Communion the increasing personal
“Source of strength for the route.”

A witness to what God’s love accomplishes
In a heart that is open to His action.



SPA-BATH NIEDERBRONN, THE HOMELAND/HOME TOWN OF ELIZABETH EPPINGER (MOTHER ALPHONSE MARIE)

                          

The starting point for this route is the Europe of 1848 with its upheavals—Spa-Bath Niederbronn, a town in the east of France; in these surroundings, a girl called Elizabeth Eppinger was born.

Niederbronn in Northern Alsace is known for its thermal baths, appreciated already in 100 B.C. Thus the town owes its name to the spring in the center called, even today, the “Roman source”.

In the 19th century, this small town counted 3,000 inhabitants, mainly living on the agriculture. Thanks to the initiative of the industrialist, John de Dietrich, a striving iron industry developed in this densely wooded region.

For reflection:
Where are my roots?
What does my homeland/home town/native country mean to me?
