Feast of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini
Mother Cabrini sailed the ocean 25 times to help others in their need. She was horribly afraid of the water. Let us face our fears with the help of Christ who leads us on the good path.
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. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
