Light broke through in 1706, in a series of persistent but docile petitions and negotiations by intermediaries and by the exiled beatas themselves. The Archbishop, restored to reason and good temper, finally gave permission for the reconstitution of the beaterio, observing the laws of the cloister, under the Third Order of St. Dominic. Thus did the beatas, led by Francisca, come home at last, restored to grace, rekindled in their holy zeal, raised to a fuller life of service and sanctity.

This new springtime saw the growth of the beaterio as a most reputable colegio for "young native girls to educate them better in the mysteries of our holy faith... and in perfect Christian life."

Francisca mothered the beaterio-colegio through these trying years, pursuing "spiritual perfection for herself and her spiritual daughters... governing , the beaterio with great prudence and fidelity... making the Eucharist the sublime center of the community's spiritual life.

This is instanced by another display of her God-inspired ardor. She laboriously pleaded with archbishops and religious superiors, for the construction of a corridor to connect the beaterio to the oratory of the neighboring Colegio de San Juan de Letran. By prayers to God and petitions to men, she bridged across physical obstacles and moral objections to gain access to constant adoration of their Divine Spouse in the Eucharist.

As with all stories of greatness, this one did not end with the death of Francisca on 24 August 1711. For as splendidly shown in her life, widows are transformed from being victims of death to heroines of life, to champions of holiness, by God's irresistible will and by his most abundant grace.

The grace lives on.

For the tree of goodness has born fruits of goodness, in the Congregation of the Dominican Sisters of St. Catherine of Siena, her true daughters in the faith; in the works for "the young, the sick and the poor" that are carried out in virtuous imitation of her; in the holy memory kept of her by a grateful Filipino people; in emulation of her as fore-mother of women empowerment; in celebration of her sanctity as flower and fruit of consecrated life... to the praise of God, and to the blessing of people, to the preaching of the Gospel

SEE WHAT'S UP...

Mother Francisca is now Venerable!
