Spaces of Encounter

Happy Franciscan Mission Week! 
Yesterday was the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. 

Spaces of Encounter

Join Bridget McTiernan '22 as she reflects on yesterday's Mass readings.  

Testament

"The embrace of Francis and the leper has a lot of energy and movement because it was a powerful moment that still affects us today. We learn how God is indeed living in all people, and that when we embrace the equivalent of leprosy in our own lives, we find love is hidden within it."

What spaces of encounter do you create today? Reflect on how we can live like Francis: The Courage to Change: Wisdom from Assisi (image and quote taken from this source). 

"What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open." Rev 3:7

Most known characteristic of St. Francis? He loved ALL creation. 

Let's celebrate by enjoying and appreciating the outdoors and our beloved animals:
