    Mother Cabrini is the Patron Saint of my Grandparents, Aunts, my Parents and myself. Columbus Hospital in Chicago was the hospital that my family always went to. From a little girl to the woman I am today, I would go into the Chapel and into Mother Cabrini's Shrine to pray for my loved ones. I still (at age 50) pray to Mother Cabrini every day.

    I wish that a list of books would be included with each saint to then lead us to more extensive reading about a particular saint.

    Great saint!! Italian immigrants must be very proud of her---Let's pray for all the immigrants in America who may be having a hard time..Dear St. Francis Xavier Cabrini pray for them, hold their hand and protect all of them from danger, hunger, poverty and especially from discrimination, be by their side all the time and they will feel good and safe...St, Francis, pray for them...

    Today, I awoke to say a prayer of thanksgiving to Mother Cabrini on her feast day, November 13, 2010.

    I made intercessory prayers to her while I was going through the process for my residency in the US. eleven years ago! I was granted permanent residency! I became naturalized this past May. Thank You Mother Cabrini

    She's the Patroness of Immigrants in America. I do believe that saints always help us in everything our heart desires and I asked her intervention that May she continueosly pray to our Lord Jesus for all the needy people who needs to be legal here in this country.
