Memorial of St. Francis of Assisi

Saint Francis was born in Assisi in 1182. After a carefree youth, he renounced his paternal wealth and committed himself to God. He led a life of evangelical poverty and preached the love of God to all. He established a rule which a number of his companions followed and which gained the approval of the Holy See. Subsequently, he founded an order of nuns and a society of laity who practice penance while living in the world. He died in 1226.

Memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary

"It could be said that each mystery of the Rosary, carefully meditated, sheds light on the mystery of man. 'Cast your burden on the Lord and he will sustain you' (Psalm 55:23). To pray the Rosary is to hand over our burdens to the merciful hearts of Christ and his Mother. The Rosary does indeed 'mark the rhythm of human life,' bringing it into harmony with the 'rhythm' of God's own life, in the joyful communion of the Holy Trinity, our life's destiny and deepest longing. Through the Rosary the faithful receive abundant grace, as though from the very hands of the Mother of the Redeemer."
- Pope John Paul II
