Lord let us not shy away from your divine service and let the spirit of your beloved Sister Francesca Cabrini be an example to spread your word to those in all areas of this earth. Whether It'd be in schools, hospitals, orphanages, churches, and even to those who roam the earth and have never heard of your divine word. Bless us each and everyday and let us grow in your spirit, as we await the joyful coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
