Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini on Prayer

Saint Francis Xavier Cabrini

Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, was a 19th century religious missionary and foundress who dedicated her life to caring for the poor immigrants in New York City. She understood that human beings have both spiritual and physical needs.
Prayer is powerful! It fills the earth with mercy, it makes the Divine clemency pass from generation to generation; right along the course of the centuries wonderful works have been achieved through prayer.
— St. Frances Xavier Cabrini

Prayer for St. Frances Xavier Cabrini's Intercession

God our Father, who called St. Frances Xavier Cabrini from Italy to serve the immigrants of America, by her example, teach us to have concern for the stranger, the sick, and all those in need, and by her intercession help us to see Christ in all those we meet. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever. Amen.
