February 26 – Saint Isabel of France


Lord Jesus, Saint Isabel of France (c.1295-1358) was the daughter of a king, but this did not make her haughty.  Since early childhood, she had an extraordinary desire for piety, modesty, and other virtues.  She persisted in remaining solely dedicated to You, despite the opinions and advice of others.  I ask her to pray for my life in this world.  Make it such a holy life, that others notice I’m different.  Help me to resist the temptation of seeking the approval of people, so that I may care only to have Your approval.  Shut my ears to viewpoints that would hold me back from growing as fast as I can spiritually.  Saint Isabel of France, pray for me.  Amen.
