The feast of St. Francis of Assisi on Oct. 4

by James Hug
The feast of St. Francis of Assisi on Oct. 4 brings to a close the Season of Creation for 2017. What will we take away from this new church season, supported by Pope Francis, that began Sept. 1 with the World Day of Prayer for Creation?

Before the Feast of St. Francis, the Italian diocese encompassing Assisi is cutting financial ties with fossil fuels, joining more than three dozen Catholic groups in marking the patron saint of ecology and "Laudato Si'."

Column on Global Sisters Report: If the four Franciscan values were friends sitting around in a circle, contemplation is the quiet one, poverty is the talker, minority is the one providing refreshments, and conversion is the eternal optimist.

From the NCR archives: A few years ago, when I was speaking in Italy, I had the great opportunity to go to Assisi and visit the small church that St. Francis built.
