Eugenie Joubert, Child
“Ardent in the evangelization of poor children who came from dechristianized backgrounds… she excelled in this mission, and quickly touched the hearts of these barely educated and rowdy children often left to their own devices.
They, the “unbearable ones”, let themselves be calmed by the one they called their “little sister” : they knew that she loved them. They saw, embodied in her, what she transmitted of her faith. »
(Excerpts from the preface to the book “Eugénie Joubert, une force d’âme”)
