SAINT CATHERINE

Melody: "La Glose de Sainte Thérèse" ["Commentary on Saint Teresa"].
 
Seeing your mother cry, poor child, Y
our heart will suffer
And the tears of your old father
Will also make you tremble.
But God sees all your sacrifices.
He will be generous:
Your parents will taste in Heaven 
All of His delights.

JOAN

God is so generous to me, I, too, want to be generous to Him. (Firmly) Yes, I shall leave this place and go chase the foreigners out of France!... All I need is the benediction of my Lord Jesus Christ, and Our Lady's protection.

SAINT CATHERINE

Mary, the Morning Star,
Will guide your steps, dear child,
And her virginal gentleness
Soon will lead your arms
Through brilliant victories.
