More information

Claudine Thévenet was born in the Kingdom of France on 30 March 1774 as the second of seven children.

Thévenet studied at the Saint-Pierre-les-Nonnains convent in her adolescence. The French Revolution saw the destruction of the old government and the formation of a new government that soon led a violent massacre in her hometown in which two of her brothers were killed in public on 5 January 1794 via the guillotine. Her brothers died forgiving their killers and the pair beseeched their distraught sister to do the same - their final words to her were: "Forgive them as we forgive". Not long after this she began to work with working women in her town and soon came into contact with the priest André Coindre with whom she formed a small group that evolved into the Religious of Jesus and Mary.
