John 14:12 Very truly, I tell you, the one who believes in me will also do the works that I do and, in fact, will do greater works than these, because I am going to the Father.
Mother Seton worked to educate poor children, to provide healthcare for them, and to do so in a Christian context. I think it is especially lovely that her day of remembrance is during Christmastide, the season of Incarnation because that is how Mother Seton lived her faith and saw God in Christ. She saw the face of Jesus in every person she met, and by loving them, she loved God.
MOVING FORWARD: Do a little research about Elizabeth Ann Seton, America’s first saint!
