The life of Serv. of God Philomene Jane Genovese, Virgin, Third Order (1835-1864) for the July 1st Franciscan Saint of the Day. She was very devout from her youth and spurned worldly luxuries in order to embrace the poverty of Christ as a Third Order Franciscan. She patiently suffered many maladies and died at a young age.

Reflection is on the luxury of dress and how we should not glory in outward apparel but concentrate on the adornment of the soul.

Read by Fr. Ignatius Manfredonia, FI from Marion Habig's "The Franciscan Book of Saints" Revised Edition, Franciscan Herald Press, ISBN: 978-0819907516
