Bl. Mary Frances Schervier (1819-1876)
Mary was the daughter of a wealthy business owner and the god-daughter of Emporer Francis I of Austria. While still young, she lost her mother and two older sisters to tuberculosis. So began a life of generous service. She and four companions established a religious order called the Sisters of the Poor of Saint Francis. They were, and still are, devoted to caring for the poor.

Reflections from the Saints

The sight of my Savior hanging naked on the Cross touched my heart. I conceived the thought of clothing Him in His poor.
