St. Jane de Chantal

Br. Mickey McGrath, OSFS

Artist's Narrative:
Prayer to St. Jane de Chantal

O Holy Mother of the children of God! When shall I rest in your immortal arms? Our souls should be wholly consumed by this desire. But I will restrain myself and peacefully await the hour which the divine Savior has destined for me, to overwhelm me with that bliss. In the meantime let us have only one desire, to please Him by doing His holy will in all things. What God wishes for us, let it be done: we are His for time and eternity. Amen.

Her feast day is August 12.
