O My Jesus, Saint Jane of Valois (1464-1505) was born with deformities and she suffered from illnesses throughout her life. Yet she refused to give into discouragement, and at a very young age she became devoted to the Blessed Mother. Later, she helped found a religious order whose chief rule was to imitate the virtues of Mary as revealed in the Bible. I ask Saint Jane to help me by her prayers that I may overcome my unwillingness to discover goodness within my pain and trials. Lord Jesus, transform my sufferings into greater holiness. Sanctify me, and help me become a better student of Your Mother’s virtues. Saint Jane of Valois, pray for me. Amen.

We are called to labor in the vineyard of Jesus crucified. Oh! What a beautiful honor it is for us to weary ourselves so that souls may be forever happy in the beautiful Jerusalem where Jesus will reunite us one day!”
