San Damiano Crucifix





While St. Francis prayed before the crucifix he heard the voice of Jesus saying to him:  “Go, Francis, and repair my house; thou seest clearly that it is fallen in ruins.”


“The rule and life of the Secular Franciscans is this:  to observe the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ by following the example of Saint Francis of Assisi, who made Christ the inspiration and the center of his life with God and people.”

S.F.O. Rule, par. 4
