Saint Josephine Panel #12625
Saint Josephine is pictured in this stained glass window holding a cross and a crucifix in her hand. Josephine Leroux joined the convent of the Poor Clares at Valenciennes at the age of 22. It was 1770 when she made her vows, and shortly thereafter the French Revolution broke out. During the revolution, the sisters were driven from their convents. Josephine returned to her convent during the war and was arrested for being disloyal to her country. Since Josephine had resumed the religious life contrary to the laws, she was condemned to death and was martyred in 1794. She was made a saint by Pope Benedict XV.
