Daily Catholic Quote by St. Francis of Assisi

St. Francis of Assisi

St. Francis of Assisi

“One day a rather worldly friend asked St. Francis of Assisi, ‘What do you do during those long hours before the Blessed Sacrament?’ ‘My son, in return I ask you what does the poor man do at the rich man’s door, the sick man in the presence of his physician, the thirsty man at a cool stream? What they do, I do before the Eucharistic God. I pray. I adore. I love.’” (St. Francis of Assisi, Deacon; from The Life of St. Francis of Assisi by Nesta de Robeck)

October 4 is the Memorial of St. Francis of Assisi (1181 – 1286)
