“Desire above all things to have the Spirit of the Lord and its holy activity,
and pray always with a pure heart,”
St. Francis of Assisi (The Later Rule, Chapter X:8)

In honor of St. Francis, we invite you to pray an online Solemn Novena, September 25 – October 3, culminating on his Feast Day, October 4. Fr. Murray Bodo, OFM, Franciscan priest and author, reads the prayers for each day. You will receive the prayers for that day in your email inbox in both written, audio, and follow-along video formats.
