“Anxiety over her son was the last major obstacle to the tranquility she needed to begin the Company. By 1633, she could devote herself to the spiritual formation of the Daughters and to foster the love they had for each other, which in turn was to be motivated by the love that Christ crucified had for the poor. All other relationships were to be put aside in the face of that love.”
