The Sign of the Cross
Stigmata of St Francis — Bartolomeo Della Gatta, c. 1487
Ave Maria!
Blessed Solemnity of our Seraphic Father St Francis, the Poor Man of Assisi!
Articles:
The real St. Francis of Assisi was not a garden gnome…Garden gnomes do not bear the Stigmata of Christ’s wounds.
A fresh look at a familiar saint: Francis of Assisi…the saint emerges as a much more complex and complicated man than previously believed, tormented by interior demons, nearly overwhelmed by the challenges of governing a religious movement and troubled by self-doubt, yet still a shining figure of the transforming power of an encounter with the living Christ.
Pax et bonum!
