St. Francis’ Foolish Way

Sep 17, 2021
St. Francis' foolish way

Reflect

All of us want to look good, but St. Francis shows us a way beyond surety, “bearing patiently not being good and not being thought good.”


Pray

God of forgiveness, St. Francis tells us not to be upset
because of others’ sins or mistakes.
Help us to get over those too.
Amen


Act
