Celebrating the Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi

On this feast of Saint Francis of Assisi, I offer his prayer: "Most High, glorious God, enlighten the darkness of my heart and give me true faith, certain hope, and perfect charity, sense and knowledge, Lord, that I may carry out Your holy and true command." And, of course, Francis knew what that "true command" was: To love God and to love our neighbor as we love ourself. Please, Creator of the Universe, more love.
