"Blessed is the soul who trusts in Jesus, because He is lavish in His promises and generous in giving His graces and treasures." - St. Frances Xavier Cabrini
November 13 is the feast of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, virgin and foundress.
Mother Cabrini (as she was known) founded the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus which served Italian immigrants in many American cities.
In 1917 Mother Cabrini died at a hospital she founded in Chicago. In 1946 she was the first American citizen to be canonized.
