I started this journal at Livejournal in 2005 with a dedication to St Jude. I knew also I had a great affection for the grace and goodness of Our Lady. Through the years, many people have been drawn to a certain post here
concerning St Francis of Assisi, whose memorial we celebrate today. They come to ask for help for their animals and also to give thanks for aid and comfort received. I especially revere Our Lady, St Anthony, St Martin de Porres, St Jude, St Joseph and St Francis.
Today I ask St Francis to bless all the animals with love and to touch the hearts of humans so that they may take loving care of the innocent creatures who so desperately need it.
St. Francis of Assisi, born in Umbria in 1181, was the founder of the Franciscan Order. He died on October 4, 1226 at the age of 45.
