God, our Father, You bestowed a marvelous gift of charity on blessed Mary Frances the virgin to help the poor and the sick. Grant us through her example to live the spirit of poverty with prudence and to serve the brethren with all care.

A little bit on Blessed Mary Frances' life is found here and about her order you can this entry.

Some groups and webpages have Blessed Mary Frances' liturgical memorial on December 15. The Roman Martyrology lists her on December 14 and the Franciscan supplement to the Roman Missal indicates today.

Come you who have my Father's blessing. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world.

O God, grateful towards those who invoke You, You gave the virgin, blessed Mary Angela, the grace to penetrate the secrets of Your richness through her daily office of praise. Grant that we, through her intercession, may direct all our actions toward You, that they be in praise of Your glory.
