Madeleine Delbrel

Madeleine Delbrel (1904-1964) studied philosophy and art at the Sorbonne in Paris. When her fianc√© decided to join the Dominicans and her father went blind, Delbrel’s life fell apart. She converted to Christianity in 1924 and founded a small religious community in France dedicated to social work. During her life she circulated a collection of aphorisms called The Little Monkamong her friends. After she died suddenly from a brain hemorrhage, the book was published to great acclaim.
