Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini: The Iconography
DECEMBER 22

Founder of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart, St. Frances Cabrini was sent to the United States by Leo XIII to serve Italian immigrants. In the U.S. "Mother Cabrini" founded numerous schools, hospitals, and orphanages. In images she wears the habit of her order. Other than that she has no fixed iconography.
