Mystic Monday

Today has been a morning of making and changing appointments and trying to clean up messes and find lost things. I am in need of some inspiration from a simpler faith . . .

I call upon brother Francis to enlighten us today. He was known for his simplicity and his charity. He once said "Preach the gospel at all times; if necessary, use words."

Here is a wonderful poem that speaks of where my heart is today:
Most High,
glorious God,
enlighten the darkness of my heart
and give me true faith,
certain hope,
and perfect charity,
sense and knowledge,
that I may carry out
Your holy and true command.
- Francis of Assisi
