Day 3 Assisi

Today we had the privilege of reading in a private chapel in the Basilica of San Francesco. One of us read a letter from Saint Paul to the Galatians and the other, a prayer of the faithful.

Father Ivano led us in a beautiful mass about Saint Francis. His homily was an explanation of Assisi’s famous cross – The one that spoke to Saint Francis. Jesus has his eyes open as he is the living Christ. If you look carefully you can see a small man in the left-hand corner. He represents all of us.

This is the cross, originally from San Damiano, which now hangs in the church of St. Clare.

This picture is of the Tau: an early Christian cross which is a symbol of salvation. Saint Francis used it to sign documents.
