What Can I Give?

Weekly Mantra

 

This week’s mantra was inspired by a Saint that has always intrigued me. I am not much of a religious person and I’d describe myself as a recovering Catholic, but some of these Saints, or at least the stories we have been told, are extremely inspiring and fascinating.

In more recent years, Saint Francis of Assisi has peaked my curiosity since there is a trail named after him, Via di Francesco, marking his pilgrimage from Florence to Rome. One day, I know I will hike this trail and maybe one day, we will all do it together?!?! Sigh…Italy and hiking!! But, today, I want to share with you one of his quotes that I love and I hope it will inspire some of your actions this week.

Remember that when you leave this earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received — only what you have given. – Saint Francis of Assisi

This week and beyond, let’s allow this quote to influence our behavior and our mantra:

What Can I Give?
What Can I Give?
