Feast of St. Francis









Today is the Feast of St. Francis – a friend of nature, a friend to all.  Besides his well known Peace Prayer and Canticle of the Sun, he wrote several other poems, including “Our Need for Thee,”  ” . . . God is like a honeybee, He doesn’t mind me calling Him that; for when you are kind – sweet – He nears, and can draw you into Himself.”
