Book of Saints – Mary Magdalen, Clotilde Angela, Mary Francisca and Others

Article

(October 17) Virgin Martyrs (18th century) Fifteen French nuns (Sisters of Charity, Ursulines and Bridgettines) guillotined at Cambrai during the Great Revolution. Their persistent refusal to cast off their Religious habit earned for them many months of imprisonment and finally the death-sentence. They, mounting one by one the scaffold, sang the Thanksgiving Hymn, Te Deum. They were beatified by Pope Benedict XV (A.D. 1920).
