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.
