Happy Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi, the patron of Cubs Scouts in many countries!
Today we celebrate the Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi, the patron of Cubs Scouts in many countries. His life example and teachings inspire us to discover our spirituality through nature and by helping others in need. He encourages us to be devoted to our religion but also be curious and acknowledge others and their believes.
In commemorating our Brother Francis, Father Jacques P. Gagey, Chaplain of the International Catholic Conference of Scouting (ICCS), shares this message with us:
“Nature is the most humble manifestation of the mystery of being. Your religion is your wealth in the service of children. Pray with them, as you can. Praying is an act of love.”
