    how funny! I was just reading about her big brother Saint Louis; in French, I have to write a journal as a historical person we've read about so I'm doing Blache de Castille. :-) both Isabel and Louis are great saints!

    St. Isabel of France, pray for us, that during this Lenten season, we may be close to Jesus the suffering Saviour who desires that we imitate Him. Help our eyes to look at Him dying on the cross, His arms stretched out on the Cross, His hands and feet nailed to the Cross and His side pierced with a lance. Dear Jesus crucified help us in overcoming our weaknesses. May we not be diverted from Your precious love, Your loving gaze and Your words spoken in the Gospel. Dear Jesus Help us. Have pity on all those suffering on bed of pain and on all sick children. Amen.
