Blessed Maria Franciszka Siedliska

Blessed Maria Franciszka Siedliska

The 21st of November is the feast day of Blessed Maria Franciszka Siedliska. She is the patron saint of Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth and Polish missionaries.
Blessed Maria Franciszka Siedliska lived between 12 November 1842 – 21 November 1902. Her parents were wealthy and they lived in Warsaw, Poland. As she was being prepared for her First Holy Communion by a Capuchin friar, she began to desire the religious life and consecrated herself to God privately.  However, her father was opposed to her joining the cloister but she was not deterred. She founded the Congregation of Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth in 1875, an active apostolic Order modelled on the hidden virtues of the Holy Family. She took the name of Mary of Jesus the Good Shepherd and in 1885 the Nazareth Sisters went to New York and settled near Chicago where they made their first foundation in the USA. IN 1989 she was beatified by Pope Saint John Paul II.

Dear children! Also nature extends signs of its love to you through the fruits which it gives you. Also, you, by my coming, have received an abundance of gifts and fruits. Little children, how much you have answered to my call, God knows. I am calling you - it is not late - decide for holiness and a life with God, in grace and in peace. God will bless you and give to you a hundred-fold, if you trust in Him. Thank you for having responded to my call.
