Happy Feast Day – St. Leonie Aviat (Mother Aviat)

St. Leonie Aviat, founder of the Oblate Sisters of St. Francis de Sales, is a part of our Wreath V. She’s a favorite of mine (among many) as one of their schools is in my town. They are lovely sisters and a joy to see around town and at Church. In addition, my parish is administered by the Oblate Fathers, so today’s Daily Mass was a celebration of her life and words.

You might want to check out her wiki article (where I got this photo) or their website (where you will see a cornflower (!), the flower we chose for her virtue) –


She has any number of great quotes but a favorite:

“Do not be preoccupied with the future, God is in charge of it.”

So easy to remember and as quickly forgotten!
