Jul 14 – Homily – Fr Angelo: St. Francis Solano
Homily #100714 ( 07min) Play - The Gospel from St Luke tells His apostles to not carry a walking staff or extra clothes but depend on others to provide these things. St Francis of Assisi after reading this passage threw off his good clothes and put on a simple ones and proceeded on the life of evangelical poverty that so marked his life and charism and contrasted to the life style of the clergy of that time. St. Francis of Solanus also followed this and like the first St Francis received miraculous powers to convert hearts throughout the missionary lands of South America, converting many thousands. Let us pray for these graces to be able to bring many new converts to Christ.
