St. Frances of Rome - March 9
The life of this Italian noblewoman was extraordinary. Her only desire was to become a nun and help the poor but she was forced to marry. Through her determination and ability to follow God's plan for her, she managed to serve the poor, convert others to her way of thinking, and even offer up her son as a sacrifice -- luckily he was spared. Meaning "free one," the name is perfect for any girl with a strong will to do good.
