Why was Marie Rouensa honored by the Jesuits after her death?

I will leave a share for my son, who has shamed me with his folly and flight, but only if he repents can he come to claim his inheritance. But if he does not repent. If he does not...he deserves nothing, and nothing will be his!

Each of my other children will be left a share. As for my two youngest daughters, I pray that my married daughter will take them as hers and undertake their upbringing...for she is a kind mother.

I must leave it in God's hands now. I can do no more.

What happened to Marie Rouensa's family?
