Daily Prayer: The world is hostile to you, Lord
Memorial of St. Francis of Assisi
The world is hostile to you, Lord, and to your followers as well. We are plagued from aggression from without and corruption from within, and the righteous are perpetually under siege. Strengthen the wills of the truly faithful, Lord, for in them hope for your Church resides. Amen.
Psalms 27:7-8A, 8B-9ABC, 13-14
