Yet Another Daughter of Charity Feast Day!
Today's feast day is for Blessed Marie Anne Vaillot and Blessed Odile Baumgarten, two martyrs of the French Revolution, part of a group known as the "Martyrs of Angers" (a town in France). Another martyr of the French Revolution, also a Daughter of Charity, Marguerite Rutan, was beatified less than a year ago.
You can find a great homily about these two martyred Sisters here by Fr Richard McCullen, one of our former Superior Generals.
How blessed am I to belong to a community with so many saints!
