Another Daughter of Charity Beatified!

Today, in France, the Catholic Church put another Daughter of Charity closer to sainthood. Sister Marguerite Rutan (1736 - 1794), a dear servant of the poor, was a martyr of the French Revolution, guillotined by her countrymen for refusing to sign the national oath that would betray her faith. Sister Marguerite is one of the many Sisters, Daughters of Charity and others, martyred during the bloody time of the French Revolution. 
Blessed Marguerite Rutan, pray for us!


Below is a video about her, in French with English subtitles:

UPDATE: The Vincentians have some awesome pictures of the beatification here
