Icon of the Day - 15th May

The only wisdom we can hope to acquire Is the wisdom of humility: humility is endless. The houses are all gone under the sea. The dancers are all gone under the hill.

TS Eliot, ‘Four Quartets’

The Wolf of Gubbio, according to the Fioretti di San Francesco, terrorised the Umbrian city of Gubbio until it was tamed by St. Francis of Assisi acting on behalf of God. Read the full story here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolf_of_Gubbio


In St Mary’s prayer cycle for May 2020, today we pray for the desire to right wrongs and injustices.
