St. Jane Frances de Chantal

"Hold your eyes on God and leave the doing to him. That is all the doing you have to worry about." -St. Jane Frances

St. Jeanne Frances was one of those remarkable women who remained faithful to God despite all her doubts and periods of spiritual dryness. She serves as a great example for women who seem to be second guessing themselves all the time... who rarely feel those "spiritual highs" that console other people. St. Vincent de Paul had this to say of her:

"She was full of faith, and yet all her life long she had been tormented by thoughts against it. Nor did she once relax in the fidelity God asked of her. And so I regard her as one of the holiest souls I have ever met on this earth."
