Maria Leszczynska

This virtuous Queen of Louis XV gives us a noble example of submission to the Church. In the last years of her life, her health was such that she was no longer able to observe the fast of Lent with her former exactness. She therefore sent one of the highest of her Court to seek dispensation for her from her Bishop, wishing thereby to show honor to her pastor, and to teach him who bore her commission what he ought to do in similar circumstances.
