St. Julia Billiart

April 8

By the time she was 7, Julia Billiart was teaching other kids in the town the faith; by 14, she had taken a vow to commit herself to doing the works
of mercy for her poor neighbors. This got her in trouble during the French Revolution, and she had to be smuggled out of town and kept in hiding
for a while. Her good humor and faith attracted others, who eventually became the Sisters of Notre Dame.
