Repair My Church

The motto of the Order of Franciscans Ecumenical is repair my church.
In 1206, Jesus came to Saint Francis of Assisi and speaking through the icon Cross of San Damiano, told him: “Francis, Francis, go and repair my house which, as you can see, is falling into ruins.”
 
Today, we are faced with a Church “falling into ruins.” Like Saint Francis of Assisi, I believe Pope Francis also received the divine call to repair, heal, revitalize, recharge, and renew the universal Church, the pilgrim People of God.
 
The Gospel of Matthew reassures us: “I shall be with you until the end of time”. (Matthew 28:20).
