Marguerite Bourgeoys
Based on input from last week's post, I have decided to spend more time on Marguerite Bourgeoys. Much of this comes from sources in Montreal as well as the wonderful book "Marguerite Bourgeoys and Montreal, 1640-1665". (cover above). Patricia Simpson follows this enigmatic woman from her lowly roots in Troyes, France to becoming an icon of French Canada as well as its first saint. If you become intrigued, I recommend Simpson's book. More next week. Read More
