Enjoy digital photography? The Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity welcome Franciscanized World images. This month find a unique Camp Franciscan 2009 photo. A group of campers named ‘the St. Francis group’ submitted this common reflection while on an opening day photography search.

Even for worms he (St. Francis) had a warm love, since he had read this text about the Savior: I am a worm and not a man. That is why he used to pick them up from the road and put them in a safe place so that they would not be crushed by the footsteps of passersby.

-The Life of Saint Francis, Chapter XXIX, Thomas of Celano

Any comments for our photographers?

    Way to go, St. Francis group! How did you ever notice that worm family? I love your connection to St. Francis’ take on worms. Not being a biologist, I’m not sure, but it seems that many kinds of worms don’t remain worms. Our hope, as children of God is the same. May we not be content to remain as worms!

  2. I find it easy to understand why God desired to transform crawling caterpillars into winged colorful creatures! May God continue to grow your keen powers of observation and environmental awareness.
