Her broad ideas, her vast culture solidly linked her with the learned/scholars, men of the Church, politicians engaged with all their strength in the renewal of the 19th century. With them she is enthusiastic for the future. She was not indifferent towards persons, and did not leave them indifferent either ; she opened her mind and heart and her strong influence was full of charm.
Her personality called forth friendship and she needed it. She was not afraid of it. Nothing shrunk before this warmth in relationships, nothing fearful, a great passion for Christ enlightened everything and left her free and yet deeply vibrant, tender in her expressions, delicate in her gestures and her manifestations of affection.
