The feast of St. Francis is celebrated by Christians on October 4th. Seen by some as merely the “birdbath saint,” Francis is admired by many for the strength of his commitment to non-violent conflict resolution, to living sustainably, and to kinship with all creation. This prayer expands his Canticle of the Creatures by including things he could not have known such as the deep time story of our cosmos and the billions of galaxies in the universe. This prayer can be adapted in any way. Because copying from the web site takes several pages, a two-side version is available (with a click on the site).
