Always engaged in prayer, she inspired amazement and admiration in all who saw her.” The text under the third panel reads, “In 429, St. Germain of Auxerre and St. Loup of Troyes, on their way to England to combat the Pelagian heresy, arrived in the vicinity of Nanterre. Among the crowd that assembled to meet them, St. Germain discerned a young girl that he considered to be marked with a divine seal. He questioned her and foretold to her parents the lofty destiny to which she was called. That child was Genevieve, patron saint of Paris.”.
