november 13 St. Francis Cabrini
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the death of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, widely known as “Mother Cabrini,” whose feast day we celebrate on November 13. It feels like no coincidence that the centennial of her death falls this year, when Pope Francis launched Share the Journey, a global campaign inviting people around the world to love our immigrant and refugee neighbors, because Mother Cabrini is a patron saint of immigrants.
Here is a short article written by CRS on Catholicmom.com about her
She lived in America--can you visit one of her shrines?
(NY, Chicago, and Colorado--maybe others?)

Almighty and Eternal Father,
Giver of all Gifts,
show us Thy mercy,
and grant, we beseech Thee,
through the merits of Thy faithful Servant,
Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini,
that all who invoke her intercession
may obtain what they desire
according to the good pleasure of Thy Holy Will.
(here name your request)
St. Frances Xavier Cabrini,
beloved spouse of the Sacred Heart of Jesus,
intercede for us
that the favor we now ask may be granted.
