Adoring Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament “Just One Hour”
St. Francis Xavier Cabrini was born in Italy yet was the first American citizen to become a saint. She stared a missionary order in honor of the Sacred Heart of Jesus to care for the poor in hospitals and schools. When she arrived in New York City in 1889, she and her small group of sisters did not even have a place to stay. Yet, they made several Holy Hours of Adoration every day despite their very demanding schedules.
She said, “Pray always with Jesus, always remembering that a soul united with Him can do everything.” At the time of her death in 1917, she had more than four thousand sisters and over fifty houses, orphanages, schools and hospitals worldwide.
