Saint Frances of Rome

Wife, Mother, Visionary

We have been asked to write on Lay people who became Saints. As we researched our last book, Visionaries, Mystics and Stigmatists, we found ourselves writing on many Saints and Blesseds, brothers and sisters who came from a life very much like our own; they never entered the Religious life, but instead served the Lord right where He had planted them, within their families.

St. Frances of Rome is one such Saint and Visionary. True Saints are remembered long past their life here on earth; they are an everlasting remembrance of how very much God loves us and when we accept that love, how very much He can change our lives. Till today, if you visit Rome, you can pray before her tomb, seeking her intercession - powerful in life and powerful in death. If you were to visit the Church on her Feast Day, you would be among the countless faithful who still pray hopefully, petitioning her to intervene for them with the Lord, their families having passed down the Good News of miracles through her intercession. St. Frances of Rome's story is one of joy and sorrow, of faith and of hope at a dire time in the world and in the Church.
