On the Tuesday of our fabulous pilgrimage we went to San Damiano to have a mass based on saint Clare and Saint Francis.

We sang some lovely songs such as “On this house your blessing Lord” to bless us on this once in a lifetime trip.

One fascinating fact that we learnt was: Saint Francis originally wanted to be rich and famous however he later decided he wanted to be poor and charitable and full of obedience, and was so much happier!
