View from San Damiano

I'm sure not everyone knows the story of St. Francis and the cross in the church of San Damiano. At some point I'll have to give a full account.  In the meantime, here is a picture of Assisi as seen from San Damiano. That will have to do for now. It is a fault, though not a grievous one, that I have St. Francis preaching to the birds at the top of the blog of the Cross of San Damiano Cybersociety, especially since the cross is so beautiful, and so meaningful to our mission of the Thursday fast. "Rebuild my Church, which you see is in disrepair." Those were the words Francis heard 800 years ago at San Damiano. Please persevere a few centuries more. We can do it together.
