Still, in His presence

"We should go to prayer with deep humility
and an awareness of our nothingness.
We must invoke the help of the Holy Spirit
and that of our good angel,
and then remain still in God's presence,
full of faith that He is more in us than we are in ourselves."
St. Jane Frances de Chantal
France ~ 1572-1641
Widow of the Baron of Chantal, mother of seven
 Founded the Order of the Visitation Sisters 
with St. Francis de Sales - 1610
Honored by the Church for the holiness of her youth,
of her married life, of her widowhood, and of her religious life
"Hold your eyes on God and leave the doing to Him.
That is all the doing you have to worry about." - St Jane de Chantal
 Sta Jane de Chantal, ora pro nobis!
