Fellow Admirers of Saint Francis

Image: Murray Bodo in front of the Basilica of Saint Francis in Assisi, Jack Wintz, OFM. For over 50 years, Father Murray Bodo, OFM, and I have been close friends, confreres, and admirers of Saint Francis of Assisi. We met as fellow students in 1951 at St. Francis Minor Seminary, located on the outskirts of Cincinnati, Ohio. Murray, whose name was Louis at the time, had boarded a Greyhound Bus in his hometown of Gallup, New Mexico, and headed east some 1,500 miles on a ribbon of highway. He arrived in Cincinnati two days later.

Live the Example and Children Will Follow

Walk the talk. Show, don’t tell. Values are caught, not taught—all variations of one theme: A good example is essential for good parenting. No doubt, if you don’t strive to live what you give, who knows what you’ll get? Like heat-seeking missiles, kids lock in on inconsistencies and double standards. Rare is the parent who has never been accosted with, “Why do I have to if you don’t?” or, “You tell me to show you respect, but you don’t show it to me,” or, “Maybe you should look at yourself.” Owww.

He ran waist-deep into the waves, racing for a young woman whose surfboard was rocketing toward the jagged rocks. She screamed and Shane leaped forward. He scooped her up in his powerful arms and rolled, letting his momentum carry them both off the other side of the board. He enveloped her protectively and put his body between hers and the treacherous rocks as the wave hurtled them against the sharp face of the boulders.

Prayers to Grow in Faith and Virtue

    We have a tendency to believe that we need to be in control of our lives and, oftentimes, of the lives of our family, our coworkers, and our neighbors. We build up burdens upon ourselves and when we are completely stressed, then we run to God. But God says, “come to me,” “trust in me,” “have faith the size of a mustard seed,” before you are worried and weak. He wants it all. He can handle it and he can give us the grace we need and the strength we need to follow his will. Trust in him and, above all, have faith.
