Her mother secretly dedicated each of her children to one of the 15 mysteries starting with her 1st child Anatole all the way to “Rose” the 10th child dedicated to the 10th mystery-the Crucifiction until her last child- Wilbrod Joseph, the 15th. Not even her husband Jean-Baptiste had known what she had done, but this would be a promise-Vow that God would hold her to and cherish!
