Lent with St. Francis: Daily Reflections
by Diane M. Houdek
Lent calls believers to turn away from sin and be
faithful to the Gospel. Few saints have done this more intentionally
than St. Francis of Assisi. He lived the teachings of Jesus, often quite
literally, from the time of his conversion until his death. In doing
so, he inspired people of his own time as well as millions from his day
to our own.
