St. Francis Xavier Cabrini (1850-1817)

Today I have pulled a card inspired by the Saint of the day. It is St. Francis Xavier Cabrini (1850-1817), the first American Saint to be canonized. As a young girl St. Francis had fallen in the river and this event made that she was terrified of drowning. Yet she crossed the ocean thirty times, because she had to as the foundress of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart.

The question for which I pulled a card is: What do I fear the most? 


I have drawn the Spear Maiden from the Arthurian Tarot. This maiden runs swift and carefree through the wood. I have a muscle tear in my left leg, due to a fall. Often I have pain in my left feet because other muscles and tendons must partly take over the function of that muscle, but are not created to do that. I have a fear of falling and twisting my ankle again, and as a result of that having this pain all the time and more importantly not being able anymore to walk for long stretches. I do not know if this is my biggest fear, but it is a fear that accompanies me all the time, because I am walking, and standing a lot, thus the risk of falling is always there.  

Inspired by: Woodeen Koenig-Bricker, 365 Saints, Harper San Francisco, 1995.
