    St. Francis of Assisi, pls pray for us, that we may also help build the Church in whatever little way that we could, the way that GOD wants us (be it in our domestic Church, the family, the Parish, the Diocease, etc).

    May GOD raise up more St. Francis of Assisis, for the Church and the world needs them.
