Jesus, warm my heart with the fire of your holy love so that I will never fall into tepidity, but will always performers action in your service with great fervor.”~ St. Frances Xavier Cabrini November 13
Feast of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini

One of the treasures Mother Cabrini left behind, perhaps inadvertently, was her journal of retreat notes. These deeply personal prayers and reflections provide us with insight into her soul and spirituality.
Today, on her Feast Day, we offer you this excerpt from her retreat notes in 1890. Let us pray these words ourselves, that we may grow more like her, and thus closer to Jesus.

Speak Lord — your servant is listening” (1 Sam 3:10) Move my heart, enlighten my mind with a ray of your light, and make me understand well what you want of me. I am ready for anything, even to give my life, so that I can achieve the perfection which you require from me. I do not trust myself because, unfortunately, I know my misery and weakness, but leaning on you, enclosed in your heart, I hope to do everything. “I can do all things in him who strengthens me.” (Ph. 4:13)

St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, pray for us.

In Jesus, Julia Attaway Executive Director
