Saint of the Day: Frances Xavier Cabrini

St. Frances Xavier Cabrini
Today we celebrate Saint Frances Cabrini, patron of Immigrants. To read more information, visit:

Also, check out some of the pictures I took when I visited her shrine located in Golden, Colorado this summer.
The Shrine from a distance. Note the statue of Jesus built at the highest point of the mountain. You want to wear good walking shoes--there are 373 steps to the top!
The view from the top was incredible! Built into the statue is a relic of Saint Frances Cabrini

Enshrined in glass is a heart made of stones formed by Saint Frances when she climbed to the top of the moutain.

We hope you enjoyed the photos! Have a happy Tuesday and be sure to stop by Newman for dinner this Thursday at 6:30pm.

Now go make a difference!! Happy Thursday, friends!
