Saint Euphrasia Pelletier (1868)

She was the foundress, in 1829, of the Good Shepherd nuns. This is one of the most charitable and apostolic orders of women in the Catholic Church. The fruits of their work among poor and wayward girls are known everywhere. Saint Euphrasia died at the age of seventy-two. This was the same age as Our Blessed Lady when she died.
