Check out the USCCB webpage for the feast of St. Francis!
I was getting a bit worried after I picked up a bishop at the airport a couple of weeks ago and said I had thought of bringing one of my dogs along for the ride. He said, "Thank God you didn't. I am not a dog person." Of course, he has not met my three fabulous beasts, Bernie (black lab mix), Clementine (boarder collie mix) and Ambrose (all St. Bernard). The completely live out the Franciscan ideal of gentleness and peace, provided they get their treats.
