"a saint in Arles or Lourdes who saw visions"

Lourdes, a small town in southwest France, is an important centre of Catholicism, following a series of appearances by the Virgin Mary to 14-year-old Maria-Bernada Sobirós in 1858.  Maria-Bernada was later made Saint Marie-Bernarde Soubirous.

The reference to Arles is more puzzling as the French town is not associated with any significant vision.  One important pair of visionaries, however, were Paul Gauguin and Vincent Van Gogh, who spent nine weeks living and working together in Arles.  The paintings from that period strike many as the product of some kind of vision, although it seems unlikely that Catholic Rice (even in her atheist period) would have considered the artists saints.
