St. Colette Boylet - March 6
A number of miracles were attributed to this French abbess who, through a series of dreams and visions, felt the need to reform the Franciscan Second Order and eventually founded the Colettine Poor Clares
. Living in extreme poverty, the order prescribed fasting, abstinence, and even walking barefoot. Under this order 18 monasteries were founded. With a name meaning "victorious" or "necklace," your little Colette would have a more unusual French name.
