Quote of the day, 5 October: Blessed Anne of St. Bartholomew

I left Paris the day following the anniversary of the death of the Saint. Although I had no desire to go to Flanders, I took this journey, my soul filled with the consolations which God sent me.

I remembered that when leaving Spain, I had a vision which seemed to me of little importance. I saw that I would not remain seven entire years in France, and that before the expiration of this time, I should go to the Netherlands. And so it was: five or six days were wanting to the termination of the seven years.

Before leaving Tours our Lord showed me a light, and by the aid of this light I saw a house; it was precisely the one that served as a dwelling when we took possession of our new foundation at Antwerp. I recognized it, as well as the young lady whom our Lord also showed me in this vision. She was the first received and was called Teresa of Jesus.

When I arrived at Mons I was very cordially welcomed by our Sisters. I remained in their midst just one year.
