Feast of St. Francis

Posted by with Comments Off on Feast of St. Francis

To tell you the truth, Francis is one of my favorite saints. He was iconoclastic, deeply in love with God, and more than a little bit weird. He talked to rocks and wolves and worked for peace. He broke the mold.

Today, Shane Claiborne shared a wonderful primer on St. Francis that is well worth reading.

And if you haven't read about Francis's encounter with the Wolf Of Gubbio, I would recommend you spend some time reading and meditating on what God was doing through Francis, through the wolf, and, perhaps, through the wolves in your own life.
