Liturgical Season: Ordinary Time


Fervent and Fearless

“Be patient in tribulations, fervent in prayer and fearless in labour”.

Saint Francis of Assisi


Saint Francis of Assisi is often reduced to a garden statue with a bird on his shoulder. In reality, Saint Francis was a radical follower of Jesus who even tore down the house his followers had built because he thought it was too fancy. He was fearless and uncompromising about his love for Jesus. Are we ‘part time’ followers of Jesus or are we fully committed? 


Prayer: Jesus, give me the zeal of Saint Francis so I may be fearless in my work for good. Amen.
