Transitus of Saint Francis of Assisi

 

Transitus of Saint Francis of Assisi   October 3rd
      From the earliest days of the Franciscan Order, the followers of St. Francis have gathered on the anniversary of his death to celebrate his transitus, that is, St. Francis’ passage from earthly life into everlasting life. We, too, remember to celebrate the light, which Francis was to his world. But, this celebration is not only a memorial, a remembering of one who has gone before us. It is also celebration of the spirit of Francis in our midst today, in each of us.
 
This is a time when we, inspired by Francis, consider how we can be light for our world.
