Feast of St. Frances Cabrini

The first American citizen to be proclaimed a saint of the Roman Catholic Church, Francesca Xavier Cabrini (1850-1917) was born in Italy. She founded the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart in 1880 and went on to establish orphanages, schools, and hospitals in many American cities, as well as in Europe and South America. She was canonized on July 7, 1946. Her feast day is commemorated in many places, but particularly at Mother Cabrini High School in New York City, in whose chapel she is buried, and at every establishment of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart.

The Immigrant Saint: Frances Xavier Cabrini

One hesitates to apply the term type to any saint, but there’s something about holy, diminutive nuns who are models of charity and kindness and at the same time, when sure of God’s will, immovably stubborn and adept at getting their way. (Teresa of Calcutta springs to mind, but there are many others.) The five-foot tall Frances never steered away from controversy. Even the title of her new band of sisters did not come easily. The centuries-old Catholic tradition of consecrated life dictated that male religious were missionaries, traveling about the world to preach the gospel and make new converts. The concept of women religious who were not contemplatives but active in the world was still novel to many Catholics, the hierarchy included. “If the mission of announcing the Lord’s resurrection to his apostles had been entrusted to Mary Magdalene,” Frances argued against the skeptical, “it would seem a very good thing to confide to other women an evangelizing mission.” Missionaries it would be.

This was a good story about a hard working woman who made personal sacrifices to help others. We all get down by the bad stories, & some are horrific! But this was a good story & it lifted my spirits. There are a few 'good guys/gals' out there, Mother Cabrini was one.
