A Franciscan Feast Day

Commemoration of the Imprinting of the Holy Stigmata on the Body of St. Francis

But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ: by Whom the world is crucified to me, and I to the world.

This, like the Seven Sorrows of Mary, is another feast day that very appropriately falls within the Octave of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. It's also one of my patronal feast days, and it's about time I got to choose what to have for a dessert instead of Maria (she gets most of the feast days around here), so we had cherry pie instead of yet another chocolate cake.
