Mother Franziska must be very happy.....

When the town of Edling built a new sports gymnasium and renovated their local school they decided to hame the latter after a "favorite daughter" Franziska Lechner, the Foundress of the Daughters of Divine Charity.... The principal arranged a beautiful re-dedication ceremony which was attended by the General Superior and the Provincial Superior of the Austrian Province.

This is the portrait that has been honored in the convent in Edling for the fifty two years of its existance in Mother Franziska Lechner's birthplace.
