St. Francis of Assisi on the Essence of Holiness

Saint Francis of Assisi
Men lose all the material things they leave behind them in this world, but they carry with them the reward of their charity and the alms they give. For these, they will receive from the Lord the reward and recompense they deserve. 
— St. Francis of Assisi

Prayer for St. Francis of Assisi’s Intercession

O God, by whose gift Saint Francis was conformed to Christ in poverty and humility, grant that, by Francis' intercession we may follow your Son, and, through joyful charity, come to be united with you. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
