“In 1640 on Rosary Sunday, I went to the procession at the Dominican Church ... So we crossed the street and passed in front of the portal of Notre Dame [aux Nonnains] where there was a statue in stone above the door. And glancing up to look at it, I found it very beautiful. At the same time, I found myself so moved and so changed that I no longer recognized myself. From the Writings of Marguerite Bourgeoys. Painting by sister Sainte-Marie-Leonidas, CND.
