Maria Irma, Countess and Baroness lived from 1866-1950. She married Prince August Ferdinand Lobkowicz and lived with their children in Vienna, Austria. Princess Irma dedicated her life to helping the sick and dying and often entered clinics, hospitals, refugee camps, and nursing homes against the advice of doctors and nurses, in order to distribute food, clothing, medical supplies, and especially the Miraculous Medal. She built her whole apostolate on the promised made to St. Catherine Laboure: "Mary always helps no matter how much time it takes." Through Irma's distribution of the Miraculous Medal, many people received their last Sacraments, broken hearts returned to Jesus, and death-bed conversions were abundant through God's grace and the help of Our Lady.
