Jul 15, 2023 Mother Cabrini’s Violets Born on July 15, 1850 in a small town in northern Italy in 1850, Francesca Cabrini knew from a young age that she was called to be a missionary. As a child she made paper boats and filled them with violets – her “missionaries” – floating them off in a nearby stream. She always expected to go to China. Mother Cabrini’s Mission As an adult, Mother Cabrini followed the advice of Pope Leo XIII to take her missionary zeal “not to the East, but to the West.” Instead of heading to China she came to the United States, where she did tremendous work among the working poor. She helped them find their spiritual and cultural footing in a new land, bringing hope, faith, and resilience to hundreds of thousands of people. In 1946 Frances Cabrini became the first U.S. citizen ever proclaimed a saint. An immigrant herself, in 1950 she was named the universal patroness of immigrants. Saint Frances Cabrini, pray for us.

Il 15 luglio verrà riproposto lo spettacolo “Hasta los confines de la Tierra” prodotto dall’ associazione teatrale giovanile Corazón sin frontera nel Teatro della Gioventù del Colegio San Josè, a El Paso in Texas.
-Qualche mese fa abbiamo ricevuto una bellissima notizia: nel Teatro della Gioventù del Colegio San José, a El Paso, in Texas, l’associazione teatrale giovanile Corazón sin frontera, ha preparato uno spettacolo sulla vita di Madre Cabrini, intitolato Hasta las confines de la Tierra. Questo spettacolo è stato portato in scena il 24 giugno da un gruppo di giovani e verrà replicato oggi 15 luglio, in occasione del compleanno di Francesca Cabrini.
Dedichiamo questo lavoro a tutti gli educatori della fede cattolica e a tutti i volontari missionari. Preghiamo Dio affinché oggi i nostri bambini e i nostri giovani si ispirino a Madre Cabrini per diventare missionari fino agli estremi confini della terra.-
