ST. FRANCES CABRINI
A PASSIONATE LIFE
‘St. Frances Cabrini – a passionate life’ was commissioned by Cabrini Health Australia to help make this remarkable woman accessible to a new generation of employees, supporters, friends and benefactors. Its purpose is to look back at her life with fresh eyes, distilling wisdom from it for our time and for the future. This beautifully crafted book draws both on the extensive letters written by Frances Cabrini during her lifetime, and other writings since. The chapter headings reflect earlier work undertaken by the author to express her charism, or her unique gift for understanding, prioritising and living her gift of faith. They are thoughtful, evocative and present their own challenge for living an authentic life today. All of the images have been carefully chosen to provide a moment of reflection, to encourage a pause before reading on. We believe it is important to create moments in our busy lives to stop, to savour, to enjoy.
