Readings for Today

When we hear the phrase, “the signs of the times”, we tend to consider it a rather modern concept. Truth is, the saint we celebrate, Saint Francis, was someone who could read and respond to the signs of the times. When he lived, the Church needed renewal and rebirth. The preaching of the faith was not credible. People were beginning to believe things that were harmful to themselves. Francis embraced a new way of spreading the gospel. He provided a credible witness to living the faith. Each one of us is invited by God to do the same. We must be credible witnesses to how faith changes our lives, and how it can do so for others.
