Blessed Thérèse Soiron, blood-sister of Blessed Catherine Soiron. Filled in as a tourière, a laywoman who made non-accepted private promises in 1772, and took care of the issues of the isolated Discalced Carmelite nuns with the outside world. One of the Carmelite Martyrs of Compiegne, executed in the counter Christian mistreatments of the French Revolution. Guillotined on July 17, 1794, at the Place du Trône Renversé (present day Place de la Nation) in Paris, France. Before their execution they stooped and recited the “Veni Creator”, as at a calling, after which they all restored out loud their baptismal and religious promises. Among eleven Discalced Carmelite nuns, three lay sisters and two laywomen workers who were martyred together in the French Revolution. They were the most punctual saints of the French Revolution that have been perceived.
