St. Jane Frances Fremiot de Chantal
The mother of six children, a widow, foundress of a religious order with the help of St. Francis de Sales, a saint: this, briefly put, is the story of St. Jane Frances.
She hath put out her hand to strong things, and her fingers have taken hold of the spindle. She hath opened her hand to the needy and stretched out her hands to the poor. — Epistle
The Imitation of Christ
Hold fast this short and perfect word: Forsake all and thou shalt find all; relinquish desire and thou shalt find rest. Consider this well, and when thou hast put it in practice, thou shalt understand all things.
With a red-hot iron St. Jane Frances wrote the name of Jesus upon her breast that she might ever remember to whom she belonged.
You belong to Christ. By what mark would one know that you do? You need not do as St. Jane Frances did but your conduct ought to show that you are a follower of the meek and gentle Savior. Bow your head when you pronounce the Holy Name or when you hear it pronounced.
Behold how they love one another.
