A DISCREET “PRESENCE” AND YET,
WHAT AN ELOQUENT ONE . . .
OF ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI!


Here again, we set the following scene approximately on this Sunday, then also the Feast of the “Stigmata of St. Francis of Assisi”: Conchita, in ecstasy, is holding in her hand her small crucifix which appeared then to witnesses as “surrounded by a brilliant light.”
[Excerpted from ‘Garabandal’ Book, page 105]


St. Francis is one of my favorite Saints! Yes, he received the “stigmata” from the Lord Jesus, who appeared to him as a flying angel! Very mystical!!! Did you know that St. Francis was also a deacon! He’s my brother in the holy diaconate! He didn’t go on to be ordained a priest. He stayed a deacon forever! I love his spirituality. As a matter of fact, I belong to a third order of Franciscans called “The Brothers and Sisters of Penance of St. Francis” (BSP). Here is their
web site: http://www.bspenance.org/. They would love to have you as a member!!!
Deacon John
