A nun

Saint Joaquina Vedruna Vidal de Mas

This holy woman was the mother of nine children. After her husband died she became a nun and founded the Institute of the Carmelite Sisters of Charity. Her order was dedicated to teaching children and nursing the sick.

She certainly knew about children. What a gift to the tradition of Catholic education!

I think she beat St Bridget by one child. She was a widow with eight.

Would not a certain Argentine have called them rabbits, or sth?
