The Life of Bl. Christopher of Romagnola, Confessor, First Order (d. 1272) for the Franciscan Saint of the Day for Oct 25. Bl. Christopher was known for his love for the poor, simple, and victims of leprosy. He was kind to others but severe with himself, industrious, converted sinners, predicted the death of St. Francis, and lived to be almost 100 years old.

Reflection is on being sociable as was Bl. Christopher, which, in Imitation of Christ, enabled him to convert sinners.
