Jeanne was mesmerized by the strength of the Catholic saints. Yes, she loved the candy, as well as the organized activities, but most of all she loved the fortitude f these great women.

With no regular school to attend and no home to spend time in, it’s no mystery that I should have been drawn to these two kind and generous women. They had organized a recreation program. They passed out candy. But what kept me coming back, once I started, were the tales of the unfortunate women like Saint Agatha, whose breasts were cut off when she refused to renounce her faith.
