Virgin. Born in 1696 in Marseilles, France; died there in 1730. She entered a convent of the Visitation in 1704, was withdrawn by her parents in 1709, reentered in 1711, and was professed in 1713. In 1713 she received a revelation concerning the Sacred Heart, and was the means of spreading this devotion through many countries. Her influence caused Bishop Henri Belsunce to establish the Association of Perpetual Adoration of the Sacred Heart at Marseilles, and to institute a feast of the Sacred Heart. She endured great sufferings for the salvation of souls during her whole life. Declared Venerable on 24 December 1891 by Pope Leo XIII.
