Francisco – March 27


Francisco, patron of humility

saving grace for souls

like mine


that reach too far and

then pull back in



of mortality, of knowledge

learned too soon

of death’s


seduction, of flight

desired, yet



humility’s lessons free

us to fly as we truly



calming the soul

to trust

in God’s hand.
