Feast of St. Francis

Luke 10:1-12

Today is the Feast of St. Francis. I have learned one thing from he and Damien of Molochai–that is to suffer–to allow the pain of others to enter into me, not to run from that suffering. Yesterday I had:

a young man scream over basically nothing; another one spit at me because I gave him a sandwhich–he wanted more; another one because I would not give him money; and so it goes–it upset me, but now I look back at the humor of it all–I did my damnest and that is what God wants, and I hope like St. Francis and Damien when my time comes I am worn out like the velveteen rabbit. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
