kneeling before her statue

of st joanna of valois,

cousin berthe poured out all her frustration and shame

at leonie's sinful conduct,

and begged that the saint

would intercede

with the blessed virgin -

whom berthe was too ashamed to address directly

and reassure her

of berthe's good intentions

and continued devotion



part 63
