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

    If you want to experience a taste of Franciscan life, consider joining the Third Order of Franciscans. We live normally in society, but gather in our joyous spiritual community
    where we can worship, talk of spiritual and daily matters, and form strong, lasting friendships. A Catholic church will be able to give you contact with our order in your area.--Bill

    In this wonderful article I came across two instances.(1)When the saint wanted to meet the pope, he was driven out.I quote "he went straight to Rome to see Pope Innocent III. You can imagine what the pope thought when this beggar approached him! As a matter of fact he threw Francis out. But when he had a dream that this tiny man in rags held up the tilting Lateran basilica, he quickly called Francis back and gave him permission to preach." (2)His mother named him after "John the Baptist" (which his father didn't agree and changed it to" Francesco"). In this days of tribulation to the Catholic church,people like Francis is needed to put a hold on to the tilting Catholic church,and to point out the mistakes and wrong path being preferred even by the clerics,like John the Baptist. Dear St Francis of Assisi, please pray for our Catholic Church.

    I was doing some research for a wealthy parishioner who is 21 and very depressed of his lust of money and sinful life, he has sought confession from me, I told him I would do my best, but your and his doctrine are not the same as mine, a PhD. in Metaphysics, so I ask our Father in Yeshua's namesake to guide me to a healing story for this lad and I found this story of Saint Francis of Assisi and his story reminds me of my young wayward parishioner, THANK YOU FATHER GOD in Yeshua's namesake, Amen. This story will set this young wealthy lad free and by helping the poor with his wealth it will free him of the burden of being a billionaire which is the source of his pain and the path to his life of sin. Always remember and never forget our Father GOD wants us to talk and walk with him and not some man adorned in silver and gold, a wolf in sheep's clothing, there will be no rich men in heaven, tithe to the poor they are our true church, have your Marriage to God our only true Father and forsake those wanting to sell you a first class ticket to sit at Gods feet. Read your scriptures & pray for enlightenment, call no man father but all Mighty God for he is our only true Father. Our Blessings to all and a special thank you to Saint Francis of Assisi for making my day.

    I pray for the soul of my beloved Joe. He was killed by a man who castrated him and choked Joe to death as he bled. This cruel man in Tok Alaska! I pray for all the worst things in life to happen to him. I can do nothing but let the trooper deal with the issue. I need to know Joe will be with God.
