3 reasons to get to know Saint Jeanne:
1. She was born in revolutionary France and saw suffering in her own home and on the bloody streets around her.
2. She’s the founder of the Little Sisters of the Poor, but the chaplain reassigned her in one of the most deamning of positions, where she served with love for almost 30 years (most of the sisters in her order didn’t know she was the founder!!)
3. Her mission was to care for the most rejected in society, particularly the forgotten elderly who badly needed care.
2 tips for this recipe:
1. If it had not been a Friday, I totally would have added chicken thigh. Next year when we celebrate her, add on all the chicken.
2. We went with the cheeses we had in the house, but there are lots of good options: Swiss, Parmesan, Havarti, you name it!
