St. Francis of Assisi Comments

Founder of the Franciscan Order, born at Assisi in Umbria, in 1181. In 1182, Pietro Bernardone returned from a trip to France to find out his wife had given birth to a son. Far from being excited or apologetic because he'd been gone, Pietro was furious because she'd had his new son baptized Giovanni after John the Baptist. The last thing Pietro wanted in his son was a man of God -- he wanted a man of business, a cloth merchant like he was, and ... Continue Reading

    There is a big difference since Roman Catholicism 20 years ago! Most teenagers are to read a bible! But the intriguing part is the parody of the message of the Catholic church! Although many are now curious and available to got to church the sacraments left behind in incorporating the communion between the message going to the listening body!
    Between Roman Catholicism and renowned religious sects the re is stigma competition that the Holy Catholic church is behind in giving the Gospel! It becomes ritualistic and unformed to the interior in addressing the mission of the church!
    I believe the church must prepare a consuming number of ministries where grace and succession of 1st century church works are to be build! Like priesthood, many men really
    vows to celebesea just to become mediator for people! Since in old times it was called to fill the lack! Now many servers have been honored by God to minister! I believe they are really called!
    In this mission's call, our obligation is to informed humanity christ penitence for mankind!
    It's like introducing this man to the needed or to the hurt! We are to consume them in what did christ command for us to do with this earth! And this is the call of the Catholic church!
    To experience the cross to the extent that from generations to generations it will continue and

    I believe abruption in gender is a disease or a demon that perils the basic core of men or either women! Those who have this have bondage! Clearly in the bible, it speaks that there are only two creation God made! It is not an excuse having same sex hallucinations but openly it is not answered if one has to release these kinds of burden in this modern day and lifestyle!
    Besides the sickness they can get if one interacts with the same sex! Our genes should be proportion for the opposite! And God understands this dillema but it is a basic temptation that Satan uses to steal our very identity!
    In the issue of values wether it is a homosexual having lived a good life; I believe the basic command of the Lord condemns the identity to believe in such way! This is also a spiritual
    attack by the opposing spirit to many us think and feel illuminated by the same sex! WE must be strong and avoid and fight these urges! Only time will know who we are!

    IN to the Light! =

    How earth was fashion in all grace! Like a dear womb begotten of child consecrated for a holy work! Like christ divided by time to summoned his very trials as a lord and shepherd!
    Imagine we inside the crest of our lives worshipping in all truth by its fed ready to hatch this mysterious birth of life!
    The reason for living is a higher thought regarding if we fully grasp the meaning of life with God or alone! bIn this world we are for to be known as it was lost! The reality to find the Light in the reality that it lights our walk in this unrooted world! Neverthless God expects his sons to come and be in his house!
    It is be of measure to reassure our failings and decreases! Amen.

    Commencement letter of God,

    The celebration of the birth of the Son of man reflects on the deity of who we are.
    We travel above this plight to recognize the trials and objects portrayed in his sufferings of mystery! We the partaker is called to do the very work of christ!
    It is a mystery to see the unhidden cross surprisingly advancing the preaching of the Gospel!
    We are sheep laid to be sacrifice by filling the account like a pattern of an ensured plow! He is the Maker and we are the model!
    This season of commenting the consecrated body of christ, is relented to show mercy upon very tribe that He is worthy and victorious! Above anything else we submit in His glory!@

    Dear Saint Francis, please help our beloved pet Tia. She is suffering so much. My son-in-law who has loved her for so many years is considering with a heavy heart to end her suffering on Saturday. She is on a new medicine. If it be the will of God, please cure her or at least make her comfortable. If it is not possible, please welcome her into Heaven. Thank you for listening to my prayer.

    I find it wonderful that Pope Francis has chosen his name in honor of St. Francis. I am a Quaker (a member of the Society of Friends) who has long considered St. Francis my favorite saint, and I now consider Pope Francis my hero! We Quakers like to summarize our core ideals with the acronym SPICES for simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality and Stewardship. I wish I knew a member of my own Quaker faith who exemplified these core values as beautifully as St. Francis and Pope Francis! I am profoundly inspired by both men!

    Dear St. Francis,

    Thank you for teaching us of God's love for all of His creation. Please pray for me that I might be selfless as you were on earth; and that I might work to protect God's perfect creation from harm or neglect, and that I might spread His peace throughout as you taught through your example.

    Its more than many years since St. Francis left this earth to heaven and is richer more than any tycoon on the earth planet. Now in heaven with all the Angels, the other saints and the blessed Virgin Mary. St. Francis pray for me in my vocation to be modest and renounce the material wealth in order to serve the church and the most needy. A major seminarian, theologicum.

    I love it so much St. Francis, that you gave some of the precious minutes of your life to intervene and prevent the slaughter of a hungry animal (the wolf you begged the townspeople to spare, and then interceded with them to feed it instead of killing it). You taught a wonderful, unforgettable lesson. Humanity needs to show MORE MERCY when dealing with members of the animal kingdom instead of always killing everything that walks on 4 legs! You are MY FAVORITE SAINT!

    *** HAPPY FEAST DAY ***

    Dear Francis,

    Today is your Feast Day and as I write this letter to you my heart is sinking in sadness and shock. It is very difficult for me to be writing you this Feast letter as I have just concluded a telephone conversation with the hospital surgeon from Hepworth Hospital in Box Hill (Melbourne) who advised me that my dad has had a downturn overnight and he is dying from an infected heart valve from his previous triple bypass surgery last month. Dad is certain to die unless he has another long surgery within 24 hours and the chances are very slim he'll survive it. Today is your Feast Day and dad needs a miracle.

    Dad suffered a massive heart attack on Assumption Day (15/8/13) and soon after at the Intensive Care Unit we learned of dad's lung & kidney failure too. It took a miracle to save his life and all was looking well until last night when he went really bad. This morning the results show that dad's heart valve is all infected and it also has a horrible blood clot, and he will soon die without another long surgery to replace the infected valve and remove the blood clot. We are desperate for your help and we pray that the healing power of Christ will save dad for the second time around on your Feast Day today - Please Pray.

    We will go down on our knees and storm the Kingdom of Heaven with our tearful prayers and open hearts for the second miracle to take place and that dad will be operated on and given a few more years of life with his two devoted sons and devout wife of 55 years. We will be thankful the rest of our lives for this very special favour we place in your hands to present before the Throne of Grace on your Feast Day today. We believe in miracles and we entrust our tearful request for the second miracle to be granted to us today - your Feast Day.
