On this Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, founder of the Franciscan religious orders, let us pray that we may be instruments of the Lord’s peace. Let us embrace the sick, the hungry, the homeless. Let s bring the Holy Gospel to life in all we do.
Today I offer prayers for my family and friends; for my students, past, present, and future; for all whom I have wronged; and for all who have wronged me. I invite you to join in on these prayers, and wish you pax et bonum: peace and all good things.
