A Meditation on St Francis, October 4th 2020

October 4th 2020

There is a long tradition in showing Francis associated with birds and ‘fluffy bunnies’ or the equivalent and the wolf [of Gubbio]. Although many people might dismiss such pictures as merely symbolic or even sentimental, I find such images deeply Biblical (see Isaiah 11.6; and, for the Song of the Three Hebrews, the Benedicite for example).

St Giles, Oxford, Evensong on Sunday 1st December 2019 [Advent 1]
