Sep 17 – Homily – Fr John Joseph: Francis, Lover of the Holy Cross
Saint Francis had a great love for the Holy Cross, so great that God imprinted the marks of the cross in to the very flesh of Saint Francis in the Stigmata. Let us also love the cross as it comes to us in our daily life, being always faithful to Him who bore the Cross for us.
