Happy feast day to all of the Friar Suppliers!
I wanted to give everyone a heads up about some ways to observe this great day.
EWTN has some excellent programming today.
Little people could color this lovely coloring page of St. Francis.
You could also listen to Sarah MacLachlan The St. Francis Prayer.
Say this prayer:
O God, who, through the merits of blessed Francis,
didst give increase to Thy Church,
by enriching her with new offspring:
grant us, that following his example
we may despise earthly goods
and ever rejoice in partaking of Thy heavenly gifts.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son,
Who lives and reigns with You and Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
Thank you for stopping by and please keep the Friars and Sisters in your prayers.
