St. Francis lived with his heart wide open to receive the ever-flowing gifts of God’s love in every single reality — from the smile of a friend to the smell of a flower to the whisper of a refreshing breeze. His life, his words, desires, actions, and decisions became a song of thankfulness to the God of infinite goodness. Gratitude so filled his soul that it crowded out anxieties, doubts, and sorrows. It can do the same for you. As you go through your day, hold onto this Wearable Blessing and open your heart as St. Francis did. It could be the first step to your own spiritual renewal. St. Francis, pray for us.
