Today is the Feast of St Francis of Assisi

World Day of Prayer for the Care of all Creation prayer image

Lord God,

You are love and charity,

you are wisdom,

you are humility,

you are patience,

you are beauty,

you are sweetness,

you are safety,

you are rest,

you are joy,

you are our hope and our delight,

you are jLive SImplyustice,

you are moderation

you are all our wealth

and riches overflowing.

Let all brothers strive to follow the humility and poverty of our Lord Jesus Christ and let them remember that we should have nothing else in the whole world except, as the Apostle says:

If we have food and clothing, we will be content with these.

They must rejoice when they live among people considered of little value and looked down upon,Pope Francis

among the poor and the powerless,

the sick and the lepers, and the beggars by the wayside.

When it is necessary, they may go for alms.

Let them not be ashamed.
