St. Francis of Assisi famously is quoted as saying,
“Preach always. When necessary use words.”
Our new Pope Francis is our modern living example
of how to Preach Always. The power of this preaching
is there for everyone to see, even to the Cover of Time Magazine.
The only thing our pope is missing is a wife who could “preach” to him
about women’s hope for equality.
Our prayer for the New Year is for the personal and global
courage to Preach Always in the way of St. Francis.
Pax et bonum,
