Feast Day of St. Francis

francis
Saint Francis of Assisi. (I couldn’t find an artist note for this one.)

Today is the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals–some say patron of all ecology. He chose the way of poverty that he might better help those who were poor.

Blessings on the rescuers.
Blessings on the keepers of wild spaces.
Blessings on the ones who talk to the animals.
Blessings on the wild ones.
Blessings on the tree planters.
Blessings on the Water Protectors.
Blessings on those who protest against the greed that destroys the earth.
Blessings on the ones who  care for those without resources.
Blessings on the bridges and the bridge-builders.

Gratitude List:
1. Moments of silence
2. Moments of stretching
3. Moments of creative frenzy
4. Moments of connection
5. Moments of Aha!

May we walk in Beauty!

  1. Oh Beth, how I needed to read this today. Your “Blessings” we’re amazing and I stand with you on every one. Good to know I am not the only one talking to the animals and that my priorities align directly with those of St. Francis. Thank you for this post. ❤️
