"Francis, Francis, go and repair My house which, as you can see, is falling into ruins."
October 4 is the feast of St. Francis of Assisi. Italians like their saints a little mad and Saint Francis fit the bill. Tearing off his clothes to protest his father's materiality, running off to the woods, preaching to the animals when the people of Assisi refused to listen. He was quite mad, which is why Poor Francis is one of the most beloved saints in Italy.
His mission marked a renewal in the church. Given the ongoing pederasty scandals, we need a new Francis.
