July 6 – Queen Sancia of Naples – Franciscan Saint of the Day
The life of Servant of God Queen Sancia of Naples, Widow, Second Order (c.1286-1345) for the July 6th Franciscan Saint of the Day. Queen Sancia of Naples used her wealth to support the poor and build convents for the Franciscans and to secure rights for pilgrims to go to the Holy Land, asking the Pope to make the Franciscans the custodians there.
Reflection is on how the manner we spend our time and money shows what we love. We must place a high value on the Lord's presence in the eucharist.
