Why a sunflower?
St. Julie was a French sister and founder of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. She was pious from a young age and hid priests in her home during the French Revolution (she was hunted for it). She suffered from poor health for most of her life but was a great teacher who took in any child, no matter class or disability. She was called the smiling saint and emphasized the importance of an interior prayer life by comparing it to a sunflower that moves in the direction of the sun so it can grow.
