From the Office of Readings ~ Thursday, 21st Week of Ordinary Time

St. Francis of Assisi

From the Office of Readings, An instruction by Saint Colomban, abbot: “I ask you Jesus, with the breath of your Spirit; wound our souls with your love, so that the soul of each and every one of us may say in truth: ‘Show me my soul’s desire, for I am wounded by your love. These are the wounds I wish for, lord. Blessed is the soul so wounded.”
