St. Francis holds a special place for our family. Kathy and I used the Prayer of St. Francis as part of our wedding ceremony. As well, the Prayer has been part of funerals in my family.
St. Francis is the patron saint of the poor. I think we are judged on how we help those with the least in our world. In some ways, they have the more than the billionaires and politicians who take from them daily.
