“As you sent me into the world, so I sent them into the world.” (Jn 17:18)

Heavenly Father,

light in us that fire that drove St. Francis of Assisi to proclaim the Gospel to all, so that we can witness your love by our life and words, through our entire life, so that we may want to live in a poor and humble manner, according to the example of our Seraphic father St. Francis.

In March a tropical cyclone hit the island of Madagascar destroying lots of houses and leaving many homeless people and destroying infrastructure. Recently we have received a request from the OFS National Minister of Madagascar, Gérard Cécilien Raboanary, if we can help them in some way. He told us that the northern part of Madagascar was the most affected. Several members of the Secular Franciscans have housing problems at present.
