Francis of Assisi, Patron Saint of the Poor

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.

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and spent the last 14 years teaching in an incrediable hybrid school setting. My dissertation topic and research were how teachers experience becoming who teachers, as human subjects. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation that allows me to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what will call me. We have begun a small consulting and leadership firm called Rocky River Leadership & Consulting Ltd.

  1. The Prayer of St. Francis is one that has touched my heart from the first time I heard it. “Make me an instrument of thy peace” is certainly a good goal for our lives.

  2. Thank you for this post. Yes, the prayer of St. Francis is great, and i think the Pope which has choosen his name will be the new sun for the church (hopefully). However the last personal changes are giving hope. 😉 Have a nice sunday. 😉 Michael
