St. Jane Frances de Chantal Comments

What a way to start a marriage! Jane no sooner arrived at her new home then she discovered she might lose it. Her husband, Christophe, had not only inherited the title of baron but enormous debts as well. But Jane had not come to the marriage empty-handed. She brought with her a deep faith instilled by her father who made daily religious discussion fun, allowing the children to talk about anything -- even controversial topics. She also ...

    I was wondering what her feast day actually was; after some internet and ordo research, I discovered a note that: her original feast day of December 12 conflicted with Our Lady of Guadalupe, and so in the US her optional memorial was transferred to August 18. However, in the rest of the world, August 12 became her feast day. However, as of 2009, the US also celebrates her optional memorial on August 12.

    In the US, her feast day is August 12, but I think maybe it used to be the 18th, because the Ordo has the 12th, but the sacramentary supplement (which is a little older) has the 18th.

    This is one of my favorite saints. I am wondering, though, why the calendar with the hyperlinks shows her on the 18th?

    I've been reading Saint Charles De Foucauldt, and he recommends minimizing one's self even annihilating it so the Lord will fill that space. Saint Jane's practice of making the self a drop in the ocean of God is very similar. The self is an obstacle to being at peace in the Lord, as the Jesus Himself said, the first thing you have to do "If you wish to follow me you must deny yourself..."
