'While you are proclaiming peace with your lips, be careful to have it even more fully in your heart.' ~St.Francis Of Assisi
Today (Oct 4th) is the feast of St.Francis and he is one of those rare saints who has managed to capture the attention and admiration of the entire world. His life has inspired people of all ages and the appeal of this saint, cuts across national boundaries and religious differences. He is most famous for his respect towards God, his simple life and his tender love and attention to all creation. Many animals and especially pets will get a special treat today in honour of St.Francis. The life of Francis still challenges all of us today. The invitation is to sort through our lives and discard the unnecessary and useless. Don't we all need to do it. Today could be the day to start.
