November 13 – Saint Frances Cabrini

Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini

listenHoly Spirit, when Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini was a child, she pretended she was a missionary to China as she sailed paper boats on a stream.  Although You eventually sent her west to America instead of East to the Orient, her childhood games shaped her desire to serve You.  I ask her to pray for our children to be protected from the lure of games that are worldly, violent, or occultic.  O Lord, prevent society’s influences from blocking their desire to serve You when they grow up.  Touch their souls to make them uneasy about games that erode their love for You and teach them to listen to Your guidance.  Saint Frances, pray for us.  Amen.
