St. Frances of Rome

St. Frances of Rome was married at age 12, had three children, and was widowed after 40 years of marriage. She spent her entire life helping the sick and the poor. She founded the Oblates of the Tor de’ Specchi (Collatines). It is said that an archangel guided her throughout her life, lighting the road for her with a lantern (like a headlight) to keep her safe. Therefore, St. Frances of Rome is patron saint of motorists.
