BEAUTIFUL! Among her most devout clients were, ST. JOHN VIANNEY (CURE' OF ARS), ST PETER JULIAN EYMARD, ST PETER CHANEL, ST. ANTHONY MARY CLARET, ST EUPHRASIA PELLETIER, ST MADELEINE SOPHIE BARAT, ST FRANCIS XAVIER CABRINI, ST. JOHN NEPOMUCENE NEWMANN, BLESSED ANNA MARIA TAIGI, PAULINE JARICOT.
AMONG THE POPES DEDICATED TO HER: POPE LEO XII - POPE GREGORY XVI - POPE PIUS IX - POPE LEO XIII - POPE PIUS X
