Catherine Vassent, Part 2

Continued from last post. . .

[They] appeared already in a state of suffocation . . .

Fearless or ignorant of danger, and irresistibly impelled by the cries of their wives and children, who surrounded the spot, Catherine Vassent, a servant in the town, insisted on being lowered without delay into the noxious opening; and fastening a cord around two of their bodies, she restored to life and to their families.  And in descending a second time, her breath began to fail, and after fastening a cord around the body of a third man, she had sufficient presence of mind to fix a rope to her own hair, which hung in long curls round her neck.

About William Moore

I am a Christian, saved and living by God's grace. I am doing this blog on a book called, "The World of Religious Anecdote," or, as I like to call it, "Christian Anecdotes." The reason why I am doing this blog, on a book, instead of about myself, is because there are so many unedifying things in the world, so that we, as Christians, need to take the world and subdue it for our Lord. I believe and hope that is what I am doing here, in this blog. I try to do my posts twice a week, in order to keep the flow going. I hope you enjoy reading, learning, and sharing this book, "Christian Anecdotes."
