Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini’s Story
Frances Xavier Cabrini was the first United States citizen to be canonized. Her deep trust in the loving care of her God gave her the strength to be a valiant woman doing the work of Christ.
The compassion and dedication of Mother Cabrini is still seen in hundreds of thousands of her fellow citizens who care for the sick in hospitals, nursing homes, and state institutions. We complain of increased medical costs in an affluent society, but the daily news shows us millions who have little or no medical care, and who are calling for new Mother Cabrinis to become citizen-servants of their land.
(The evening before crossing the Reed Sea out of Egypt)
The cloud overshadowed their camp;
and out of what had been water, dry land was seen emerging:
Out of the Red Sea an unimpeded road,
and a grassy plain out of the mighty flood.
Wait on the Lord and He will do marvelous things!
Remember the marvels the Lord has done!
God has called us through the Gospel,
to possess the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Jesus told his disciples a parable about the necessity for them to pray always without becoming weary.
The Parable of the Persistent Widow.
If persistence with wicked persons brings about a small measure of justice, then how much more so from the Divine Love who cares for us every moment?
- Prayers, not vigilantism.
- Justice, not domination.
- Love, not civil war.
Peace be with you,
