Falling in Love 34

A green tau/ cross


Today is the feast of St Francis, known as the patron saint of environmentalism. He was someone who was constantly falling in love with God, with the world around him, with all the diverse creatures and people he met – many of whom were despised by others – and with simplicity and poverty. Indeed he declared himself betrothed to Lady Poverty.

Let us follow his example of delighting all that is around us, of pursuing a life of simplicity, and of joyfully loving God.
