The San Damiano Cross,

before which St. Francis of Assisi was praying when he received the commission from the Lord to rebuild the Church.

Many Christians - especially Franciscans - hold this cross dear  as a symbol of their mission from God.


Prayer Thought: The whole of the Christian life - our response to the love of Christ, our own readiness to serve, our waiting with trusting, joyful hope for him and for God’s kingdom to come and his will to be done - is summed up in today’s celebration in a single word: Wisdom.

God bless
