“Adèle did not set out to be a model for anyone. She sought only to do the will of her loving God. And, like the Mother of Jesus eighteen hundred years earlier, in so doing she allowed God to do great things in her. Her life, her work, and especially her ideas and her ideals can continue to inspire us today.”
from Adèle, Aristocrat for the Poor by Joseph Stefanelli, SM
