In ancient Florence’s noble land,
A woman stood with purpose grand,
Saint Juliana Falconieri by name,
A beacon of light, her saintly flame.
With grace and beauty, she was adorned,
Her heart in service of God, firmly sworn,
In the footsteps of Christ, she trod,
Devoted to serving the will of God.
A noblewoman of virtuous might,
She sought to spread God’s love and light,
Through acts of kindness, she would bring,
Comfort to those suffering.
In devotion to the Virgin Mary,
Juliana’s love knew no boundary,
Her heart ablaze with fervent desire,
To ease the world’s pain, to quench its fire.
With compassion as her guiding star,
She founded the Sisters, near and far,
The Third Order of Servites, their name,
To serve the Lord and proclaim His fame.
Her words like poetry, soft and kind,
Inspired others, hearts entwined,
To follow her path, to embrace her call,
To serve humanity, one and all.
She taught the lessons of selfless love,
The grace bestowed from God above,
In humble service, they found their worth,
Transforming lives upon this Earth.
Saint Juliana, a luminary divine,
Her legacy continues to shine,
A testament to a life well-lived,
In service to God, she truly thrived.
So let us remember her sacred name,
And kindle in our hearts the flame,
To follow her footsteps, stand tall,
And serve the world with love for all.
