The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away. (1Peter 1:24)

What the Pope Should Have Said

“Does it please you, O God, to deliver into the hands of these beasts the defenseless children I have nourished with your love? I beseech you, dear Lord, protect these whom I am now unable to protect.”

--Prayer of St. Clare when her convent was under siege by Muslim attackers. Her feast was August 11th.
