October 17 - Servant of God Baptista of Piacenza - Franciscan Saint of the Day
The Life of S. of God Baptista of Piacenza, Virgin, Third Order (d. 1515) for the Franciscan Saint of the Day for Oct 17. Baptista entered a convent in Piacenza, loved poverty, prayer, and penance. She had a devotion to the eucharist and a contemplative spirit. Reflection is on preparation for receiving the blessed sacrament to provide a good resting place for the Lord, yet to not descend into scrupulosity.
