Extract from Frances Of Rome: “St. Frances of Rome founded the institute known as the “Oblati di Tor de Specchi” in the Holy City. She was a wealthy patrician and after her husband died, she gave up all her wealth to live a life of abject poverty. Her special privilege from heaven was familiar conversation with her guardian angel. Reading the life of St. Frances, one gains the impression that she moved and lived in the spiritual world more than on earth; in fact, that which gives her life its unique character is her intimate relationship with the blessed world of holy spirits.” See PICTURE of St. Frances of Rome.
