This evening we commemorated the Transitus of St. Francis of Assisi. It always occurs on Oct 3, the eve of his feast day. This year we had readings that dramatized the relationship Francis had with several important people in his life. We were blessed with a relic and shared bread.I’ll be up early to attend 8:30A Mass to celebrate the Feast. I find myself very tired at the moment — anticipating my trip to Rome on Sunday — so much to do.
