Happy Feast of St. Francis!


Following more boldly in Christ's steps
than perhaps any men before or since the thirteen century,
Francis and his friars lived in extreme poverty and simplicity.
He was the humblest and most successful
of all the reformers who from time to time
renewed the medieval Church.
