The Feast of St. Francis of Assisi

It is the Feast of Francis.  Tonight we celebrate Francis as he goes to God with all creation.

Come and pray with us at 7 pm on Tuesday, October 3rd here at the Monastery.

The Celebration of the Eucharist is at 10 am October 4th.

Last Journey for this pilgrim, last leaving for this homeless wander; now, it is into the sea behind his Moses, his Lord, his love, into possession of the promised land where he too, will be clothed in light.

This crossing will be a simple one: the wars are done.  The winds of love sweep mightily, across the midnight sea.  Barefoot and blind, singing, he steps onto dry sands that sparkle gold, beneath his wounded feet.    Thank you Sister Kate.
