Glimpses of Frances Cabrini
The person who became Mother Cabrini did not arrive out of thin air: she was nurtured in the context of a loving family and a closely knit local ecclesial community. We recognize that the cultural and religious context that informed Frances Cabrini was different from our own, but that there are some common universal markers. For example, the experience of being part of such a family which not only expressed love and concern for each other but also encouraged its young people to reach out in practical ways to the needs of others in their locality. The meaning of these tentative acts of selflessness was provided by the religious milieu in which Frances was immersed. Family prayer and public liturgy affirmed and deepened this worldview.
