Yesterday the Feast of St Francis was celebrated around the world. Even after almost 800 years, this man continues to ignite imaginations and stir the spirits of all who come into contact with him.
His approach to serving the poor in humility and faith was both counter-cultural and revolutionary.
We pray that the example of St Francis may always inspire us to live as people of the Gospel so as to reach out to those most in need.
St Francis, pray for us.
