Transitus at University Chapel

Tonight I joined other Franciscans at St. Bonaventure University Chapel in both remembering our seraphic father St. Francis and in re-committing ourselves to living out his ideals. It was a lovely liturgy and different from what I expected. This was my first time at the Feast of Transitus. St. Francis died just after sunset on October 3, 1226, at the age of 44.

“Be praised, my Lord, for our sister Bodily Death whom no living man can escape. Woe to those who die in mortal sin! Blessed are those whom she will find doing your holy will, for to them the second death will do no harm”. –St. Francis of Assisi
