Thought for the Day – 9 March
What an amazing lady! St Frances of Rome was an ordinary wife and mother whose love for God and His children knew no bounds and who trusted in God to give her guidance. There was nothing she felt she could not do with God and she let nothing stop her. Looking at her exemplary life of fidelity to God and devotion to her fellow human beings which Frances of Rome was blessed to lead, one cannot help but be reminded of Saint Teresa of Calcutta, who loved Jesus Christ in prayer and also in the poor. The life of Frances of Rome calls each of us not only to look deeply for God in prayer but also to carry our devotion to Jesus living in the suffering of our world. Frances shows us that this life need not be restricted to those bound by vows. We need something of her love and her trust and energy and then we too, can accomplish great things!
St Frances of Rome, pray for us!
