Patronage; Immigrants & Hospital Administrators
Feast Day: November 13
Born in Milan, Italy, she was the youngest of 13 children and dreamed of being a
missionary in China or India. After becoming a teacher, she took her religious
vows and founded the Institute of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart.
When she asked the Pope's permission fo her Order to working China, he said, “Not to the East but to the West,” so she helped the poverty-stricken Italian immigrants in New York. In her lifetime she opened 67 hospitals, schools and orphanages in the US, Latin America, Europe and even China.
"Prayer by St. Francis Xavier Cabrini
Fortify me with the grace of Your Holy
Spirit and give Your peace to my soul that
I may be free from all needless anxiety,
solicitude and worry. Help me to desire
always that which is pleasing and
acceptable to You so that Your will may be my will."
