St. Francis

Today is St. Francis feast day and as always, his words are timeless.

"O divine Master, grant that I may no so much seek,

To be understood as to understand;
To be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;

It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life."

Let us think on these words today and every day and perhaps, each in our own small way can make this world a better place to live. May the Lord's peace come into your hearts.
