St. Francis Borgia

Once St. Francis became quite ill. He was quite weak, numb and insensitive to all attempts to rouse him to some conscious state. Even pain inflicted on him yielded no results. Day after day this continued, the whole day through.

Day after day, however, there was one exception. For two hours each morning, spent in preparing for reception of the Blessed Sacrament and in thanksgiving after it, he was awake and cheerful, appearing to be in good health.
