Newsnote: Holy Card of Marguerite Naseau acquired

This holy card is an unusual depiction of Marguerite Naseau (the “first” Daughter of Charity). This image is much more realistic than the traditional image of Marguerite as a young beauty queen. The card is from Belgium and dates from the first half of the 20th century. The Vincentiana collection at DePaul University’s Archives and Special Collections has now added this card to its extensive collections. The quotation from St. Vincent de Paul at the bottom of the card is translated: “I do not remember ever seeing her without being edified.”
