the Poor Clares habit from Peter de Luna, whom the French recognized as Pope under the name of
Benedict XIII, with orders to reform the Order and appointing her Superior of all convents she
reformed. Despite great opposition, she persisted in her efforts. She founded seventeen convents
with the reformed rule and reformed several older convents. She was reknowned for her sanctity,
ecstacies, and visions of the Passion, and prophesied her own death in her convent at Ghent,
Belgium. A branch of the Poor Clares is still known as the Collettines. She was canonized in 1807.
