St. Frances Xavier Cabrini is a beacon of hope and life, the general superior of the order founded by the saint, the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, wrote Tuesday to mark the 75th anniversary of the foundress’ canonization.
Saint, lover of Christ, businesswomen, entrepreneur, advocate for the vulnerable, audacious, servant, educator, hard worker, mother… St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, lived prophetically, a woman beyond her time, human and humanizing, and until today a beacon of hope and life. She gave her all to bring the love of Christ to the ends of the earth,” Sister Barbara Staley wrote July 6 to the members of the order.
“Mother Cabrini continually shows us that as we lay down our lives, so we truly can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. In her words: ‘God has done it all, I have only been a spectator of God’s work.’”
Mother Cabrini was canonized July 7, 1946, by Venerable Pius XII.
