HOLY SOULS – day 5

       

Sr Mary of Jesus (Madeleine Dupont) was born in February 1851, and entered Carmel in 1872, being welcomed by M. Mary of the Blessed Trinity who  was  Prioress at that time.  Her Life is told  in full in the Book  “In the  Silence  of  Mary”  (See Crafty Nuns Shop) She was also one of the Founding Sisters, and  in fact she was nominated  Prioress when M. Mary of the  Blessed Trinity  retired from office  in 1883.  In fact, M. Mary of Jesus  carried the unusually heavy burden  of Prioress for the  rest  of her  long  life, during which she founded 33  other  Carmels in Britain.She died on March 15th 1942. The images above show sister with her brother and her mother.
