Sr Marie Madeleine of Jesus Host, O.SS.R. (1868-1933)

Sr Marie Madeleine was born at Poperinghe, Flanders, on 2 June, 1868. She was baptised Helen Marie Cornelia Coevoet. Entering the Redemptoristine Order she received her religious name which may seem a little odd to English speaking readers, but the name "Jesus Host" is reasonably commonly given to French nuns in honour of the Eucharistic Jesus. She died piously at the Redemptoristine Convent of Bruges in the 33rd year of her monastic life on 11 March, 1933. †
