Saint Jane Frances
Wednesday, 12 August 2020

Saint Jane Frances Frémiot was born at Dijon, France, in 1572. She and her husband had six children; in 1601, her husband died in an accident.

After over-coming her depression, she sought the spiritual dimension of her suffering. With her spiritual advisor, Francis de Sales, she founded the Congregation of the Visitation for women who wished to live a religious life but could not endure the austerity of the existing religious orders.

Committed to working with the sick and the poor, she died in 1641, having established about 85 monasteries. She lived the agape and inspired others to live the same to effect the healing and love of Jesus.

Just as the parables of Jesus show the love of God in stories about lost coins, vineyards and generous landowners, the followers of Jesus must make the events of everyday life point to God\'s loving presence among us.
