Thought for the day, Monday 13th September

“Keep a clear eye toward life’s end. Do not forget your purpose and destiny as God’s creature. What you are in his sight is what you are and nothing more. Remember that when you leave this earth, you can take nothing that you have received, but only what you have given; a full heart enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice, and courage.”
St Francis of Assisi (1181 – 1226) who received the wounds of Christ (known as stigmata) on this day in 1224, after a vision praying on Mount Verna
