Saint of the Month

St. Frances Xavier Cabrini

St. Frances Xavier Cabrini

Feast Day – November 13

“Mother Cabrini” is our first citizen saint and a beloved New York saint (she’s enshrined in the Bronx and her image is on the magnificent bronze center doors of St. Patrick’s Cathedral).

She came to the United States instead of China with her own community, the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart, in 1889 at the direction of Pope Leo XIII and spent 28 years working mainly for Italian immigrants. A string of schools, orphanages, and hospitals across this country especially that now care for the needs of all attests to her success.

God our Father, you called Frances Xavier Cabrini from Italy to serve the immigrants of America.

By her example teach us concern for the stranger, the sick, and the frustrated.

By her prayers help us to see Christ in all the men and women we meet.

Amen.
