Saints

St. Jane Frances de Chantal

Jane grew up in a wealthy family and married a loving husband. When he died in a tragic accident, Jane was thrown into a deep grief. St. Francis de Sales helped her to see God’s goodness, even in the midst of her sorrows. She slowly began to see God at work in her life and was finally able to forgive the man who caused her husband’s accident. Jane later founded a community of sisters. She gave them simple, practical advice, teaching them to do everything for the love of God.
