Extract from SAINT JANE FRANCES de CHANTAL Foundress of the Order of the Visitation of The Blessed Virgin Mary (1572-1641): “At the age of sixteen, Jane Frances de Fremyot, already a motherless child, was placed under the care of a worldly-minded governess. In this crisis she offered herself to the Mother of God, and secured Mary’s protection for life. When a Protestant sought her hand in marriage, she steadily refused to marry ‘an enemy of God and His Church.’ . . . .  God had marked her for something higher than domestic sanctity. . . . Well might Saint Francis de Sales call her ‘the valiant woman.’ She founded under his direction and patronage the great Order of the Visitation. . . . The Congregation of the Visitation, whose purpose was to admit widows and persons of fragile health, not accepted elsewhere, was canonically established at Annecy on Trinity Sunday of 1610. The Order counted thirteen houses already in 1622, when Saint Francis de Sales died; and when the Foundress died in her seventieth year, there were eighty-six. Saint Vincent de Paul saw her soul rise up, like a ball of fire, to heaven. At her canonization in 1767, the Sisters in 164 houses of the Visitation rejoiced.” See PICTURES of Saint Jane Frances de Chantal.
