Our Saint was a Poor Clare nun who was born in 1381, and who had a sewpcial devotion to the Passion of Our Lord and to the practice of holy poverty. The Dominican, St. Vincent Ferrer was a good friend. Together they are considered as most responsible for the end of the Great Western Schism when the Popes resided at Avignon, France between 1378 and 1417: The Fathers in council at Constance were in doubt as to how to deal with the three claimants to the tiara — John XXIII, Benedict XIII, and Gregory XII. At this crisis Colette, together with Saint Vincent Ferrer, wrote to the Fathers to depose Benedict XIII, who alone refused his consent to a new election. This was done, and Martin V was elected, to the great good of the Church. Her Feast is March 6.
