St. Francis of Assisi – October 4
(Blessing of Animals 1PM Sunday, October 2)
This week we celebrate the life of St. Francis of Assisi who died on October 3, 1226. We look to St. Francis as a model for deep compassion for all and love of God’s creation. Renouncing his life of wealth and privilege, Deacon Francis responded to God’s call to rebuild God’s Church by calling others to live fully the core of the Gospel of Jesus the Christ. Today the Franciscan family includes more than 15,000 women and men who follow the example of St. Francis.
I offer to you 10 quotes attributed to St. Francis. May we find in them the voice of the Holy Spirit calling us to rebuild God’s Church.
Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.
Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
If God can work through me, God can work through anyone.
For it is in giving that we receive.
While you are proclaiming peace with your lips, be careful to have it even more fully in your heart.
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned.
Praised be You, my Lord, through our Sister, Mother Earth, who sustains and governs us, producing varied fruits with colored flowers and herbs.
Where there is injury, let me sow pardon.
Praised be You, my Lord, through Sister Moon and the stars; in the heavens you have made them bright, precious, and fair.
I am the herald of the Great King.
