Bl. Esther Blondin

Bonjour! And a happy memorial of Bl. Esther (in religion, Marie-Anne) Blondin of Quebec. Despite her being illiterate, she became a teacher and from there founded a religious order, of which she was the first superior. However, because of persecution by her chaplain, she ended up as the congregation's laundress. She accepted this cross with grace and dignity.
