Events this weekend in Church History

    On Friday 775 years ago in 1224 Saint Francis of Assisi, who had journeyed to Mount Alverno in prayer was given the visible stigmata by God. From that time on his hands, feet and side bled at certain times. He became the first "modern" stigmatist. In Francis' writings he reinforces that he considered such pain a tremendous gift from God and embraced His Will in everything.
