Today was marked by the remarkable visit of Pope Francis to Assisi accompanied by the 8 Cardinals with whom he is consulting on the pastoral priorities of the Church.
During his visit to the birth place of Saint Francis, the Pope met children with disabilities, the sick, the poor and the various types and flavours of Franciscan men and women. The Holy Father challenged us to live the ideals of Saint Francis and to do so in service of the poor.
May this visit of the Pope of the Feast of Saint Francis be a blessing for the Church.
Happy Saint Francis Day!
