Sayings of St Jeanne Jugan

Jeanne left no writings.  In fact the only written words we have from her are those of her signature.

However, we are privileged to have many of her ‘sayings’, that is, advice she gave to the novices during the many years she providentially spent with them in the silence of their novitiate.
