Obscure Saint of the Day: St. Placide Viel

Another day, another wonderfully obscure saint to reach out to for intercession!

Today is the feast of St. Placide Viel!



Placide was a nun and mother general, born in Normandy, France. 

She worked hard as mother general, and in 1859 she won final approval for her institute from Pope Piux IX. 

She was active in organizing relief during the Franco Prussian war. 

St. Placide Viel died in 1877. 

St. Placide, pray for us!
