Feast of St. Francis of AssisiOctober 4th, 2014
Jesus listens to the rejoicing of his disciples who come back happy with their performance among the people. They have discovered they can perform miracles and so on but Jesus takes the wind out of their sails and reminds them they should be rejoicing that their names are written in heaven.
Today is the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi 1181 – 1226, who abandoned all things for the love of Christ. He founded the Friars Minor, and with St. Clare, the Poor Clares. For the last two years of his life he suffered the stigmata.
