St. Frances of Rome

Frances was born in Rome in 1384. As a young woman she married a man named Lorenzo and had three sons. At that time in Rome, several epidemics of plague broke out in the city. Sometimes the sick were abandoned because there were not enough people to care for them. Frances would walk the streets of Rome looking for the sick. She brought them home and cared for them there. When her house was full she would visit the hospitals so the sick there would not feel lonely. After her husband’s death, she founded an order of sisters to care for the sick.
