FEATURED SAINT
St. Frances of Rome
Feast Day:  March 9
 

St. Frances of Rome lived a life of obedience to God. Her life was filled with good things, but not necessarily what she wanted. Still, she fulfilled her duties in good spirits aiming to please God. 

Prayer:
Saint Frances of Rome, help us to see the difference between what we want to do and what  God wants us to do. Help us to discern what comes from our  will and what comes from God's desire.  Amen
