Peace Prayer of St. Francis (Happy Feast Day!)

Today is the feast day of beloved St. Francis of Assisi!

Roy DeLeon is a fellow Benedictine oblate from St. Placid Priory in Lacey, WA and also a yoga teacher.  He offers this beautiful experience of embodied prayer with St. Francis’ “Peace Prayer.”  Let these words and images enter the depths of your own body and see what you discover about not just thinking peace, but being peace.  Let this be an act of gracious hospitality to love, joy, hope, and light.
