As we arrived to the the Basilica of San Francesco d’Assisi yesterday afternoon, we heard the tragic reports of the Sri Lanka Easter bombings. Our hearts go out to the people who have been killed & their families looking for them, grieving & devastated by this atrocity.
.
We must wake up to our shared humanity.

  • His father had been a rich silk merchant who had spoiled him. He was baptised Giovanni di Bernardone but for some reason his parents called him Francesco (which means frenchman). He had loved the pleasures of life before he found religion. He had his first visions in his late twenties where he was told to repair the church. He took that literally and started repairing or restoring derelict churches but also renounced his wealth. He started wearing a robe of coarse wool like those worn by the poorest peasants. His piety started to attract followers. He also preached in a way that laymen could easily understand, and always in the local language (as apposed to latin). That made him a popular preacher even though he was never ordained as a priest. Eventually he founded several new religious orders, the most famous being the Franciscan order. He became most famous because of the stigmata or the wounds of Christ that he received later in life. In this painting the stigmata can’t be seen. Instead the focus is on purity, simplicity and faith. The robes are torn, patched up and frayed at the edges. We can barely see his eyes, but if you do look closely enough you can see that he is in religious ecstasy. He might be praying or he could be looking at a vision. I love how Zurbarán used so little colour to express so much.

  • The Church is truly universal. But I bet in this community it doesn't take a full six degrees of separation to connect you and I via a little city called Steubenville. I've never been a student there, but will be visiting @franciscanuniversity in a few weeks with some of these guys in tow.
⛪
Take a minute to tag your favorite Franciscan University student, alum, or anyone connected and let them know you're thinking of them!
❤
My two faves are obviously @lifeasaprayer and @kelskels619 - beautiful Christ-centered women who also happen to be my sisters. You both are lifelong inspirations to me. Followed closely by the ever lovely @danielle_syrup - one of the most welcoming souls I've ever met!

(A small batch of St. Francis of Assisi will also be available on the 1st on marekmade.com)

  • Due to popular demand, Saint Francis Prayer cards will be available in the shop on Easter Sunday! It’s one of my favorite prayers and I’m excited to have it available in prayer card form soon.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Amen.

  • Bem-aventurados aqueles que as suportam em paz,

pois por ti, Altíssimo, serão coroados.

Louvado sejas, ó meu Senhor, por nossa irmã a Morte corporal,

à qual nenhum homem vivente pode escapar:

Ai daqueles que morrem em pecado mortal!

Bem-aventurados aqueles que cumpriram a tua santíssima vontade,

porque a segunda morte não lhes fará mal.

Louvai e bendizei a meu Senhor, e dai-lhe graças

e servi-o com grande humildade… (Cântico das Criaturas - Francisco de Assis)

  • Got fired today and it's pretty frustrating. One job after the next I try and fail. We're all told all the time (now that entrepreneurship is cool) that you just gotta get out there and start. And while this is true in a lot of ways, it's not a foolproof plan. Thomas Edison found 1000 ways not to make a light bulb and one 1 way to make it work. It's the "hustle" as people like to use (thanks Gary Vee) that gets it done. It may take me 1000 jobs or 10,000 or only 100. But eventually I'm gonna find the one that works, just as you will. Continuous failure is acceptable. it's gonna happen to you whether you wanna accept it or not. But without it we wouldn't have light bulbs, we wouldn't have computers, we wouldn't have cars, and we wouldn't have people like Billy Graham or Francis of Assisi (RIP) who's ideas and work still continue to make the world better for all of us. If you wanna be the greatest you're gonna have to fail like the greatest. That means constant failure has to equal constant improvement, not constant sadness and frustration. One step at a time is all you got. Don't let anyone dull your shine, especially not yourself. #motivation #dontbeabitch #dontfitin #standout #bedifferent #bebetter #beyou #beyourself #besuccessful #bestrong #staymotivated #beyourself #staypositive #inspiration #inspirational #inspirationalquotes #francisofassisi #stfrancis #garyvee #garyvaynerchuk #entrepreneur #thomasedison

  • If you like all things Italian, you will love Assisi, a UNESCO world heritage site celebrated for its collection of art and architecture, and home of St. Francis of Assisi. After a walking tour, be sure to take time for an espresso at one of Assisi’s many outdoor bistros.
