Saint of the month: Frances of Rome

The random saint generator of Jenifer Fulwiler gave me this saint:

Frances of Rome, (1384 – March 9, 1440) is an Italian saint who was a wife, mother, mystic, organizer of charitable services and a Benedictine oblate who founded a religious community of oblates, who share a common life without religious vows.

An interesting life that you can read in wikipedia or here

What I can learn from this saint is the desire of follow God's will, and the ability to do so in a lay world. She spent much in alms and helping the poor in time of crisis. A proper example, specially for this time of lent.
