What a change has come over me!... O sweet Virgin, your voice has dissipated all my fears, now I'm not afraid anymore.... Saint Michael the Archangel came, he too, to visit me, his voice just terrified me. But your sweet singing gives me so much joy that I will fearlessly obey God's will!

[Scene 8]

SAINT MARGARET enters and greets Saint Catherine.

Melody: "Seigneur, quand de ma froide couche... " ["Lord, When from my Chilly Bed..."]

Renowned virgin Catherine
In vain I sought you in Heaven.
Just now I crossed the hill
Between me and this place.
I was on the holy Mountain
Where I asked the Lord
To send a beautiful consoling angel
To our dear little friend.
And the great King said to me:
"Fly to the simple shepherdess's side,
My heavenly messenger.
I can put My trust in you
