On August 12, our faith community celebrates the feast day for St. Jane Frances de Chantal. As a disciple of her friend and mentor St. Francis de Sales, her practical wisdom can be seen through the profound simplicity of her writing style. St. Jane invited us to meet God with an open heart and a generous ear through the gift of prayerful silence. "Prayer, more is accomplished by listening than by talking." As followers of Christ, may we welcome the Lord our Savior with attentiveness to the movements of the Holy Spirit. Happy feast day St. Jane Frances de Chantal!!
