Today is the Feast of St. Louis, King of France!

St. Louis (Louis IX) is one of the patrons of the Third Order of St. Francis (St. Elizabeth of Hungary is the other). He lived between 1214-1270 and knew St. Dominic and St. Bonaventure! He was a holy king that founded hospitals, churches, and promoted learning among those that lived in his kingdom. He had 11 children. He considered God's laws as higher than his own laws.

Our Community is Third Order, so he is one of our patrons!

Have a great day! May St. Louis be an inspiration to us! Pray for us!
