Marie de l’Incarnation Haiku

Venerable nun,
Sacrificed for everyone,
Except her son, Claude.

… inspired by my school research on Marie de l’Incarnation, an Ursaline nun in 17th Century “New France” aka Canada, who abandoned her son Claude when he was 11 years old to the care of her sister and listless brother-in-law to join the sisterhood. Claude was bitter for many years and eventually became a Benedictine monk … good for him.
