Sep 20 – St. Francis Mary of Camporosso – Franciscan Saint of the Day
The Life of St. Francis Mary of Camporosso, Confessor, First Order (d. 1866) for the Franciscan Saint of the Day for Sep 20. St. Francis Mary was a jumble Capuchin who begged for food for his friary and for the poor and was known for performing miracles. During a plague, he offered his life to God and the plague ceased the day he died of the disease.
Reflection is on Self-sacrifice.
