St. Francis of Assisi - St. Francis of Assisi

This is a great little piece written by a young man, who describes what St Francis means to him and how that has impacted his life, and in turn, can impact ours too.

For those called to follow Francis, we must develop and nurture a relationship with him. He was a real man: who, like us all, found things difficult at times but he was also somebody, who believed and trusted in the immense Goodness of God.

A lot of what is written in this article resonates with me and. by reading and meditating upon it, I pray it will resonate for you also.

Peace and Goodness to you all

  1. I agree. It's a lovely piece and well written..
    Thanks for making it available.
    The world is still catching up with St Francis.
    The fact that he is the most popular and well known of the saints among all faiths and even in the secular world is a testimony to his universal values and integrity of his life.
    Thanks for sharing this.
