Yesterday, October 3 we celebrated Right to Life Sunday, and today, October 4th is the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. I may be a little biased,since St. Angela Merici had a trance of Francisan formation, but I find Francis to be the most passionate “right to life” saint that there ever was. He saw the world and all of its creatures as completely connected; we are all brothers and sisters– every tree, every plant, every cat, every bird, every man and woman and child! What a great description of “right relationships!” If we could live Francis’ vision– with Francis’ passion– the world would be a much better place.
In the words, of St. Francis, Pax et Bonum… Peace and Everything Good!
