Not the elephant nor the donkey but the Lamb of God

Design: Not the Elephant or Donkey, but the Lamb

Instruments of Peace: Dove Graphic with the Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

When I was growing up, one of the few “religious” things that I remember that touched me and influenced me deeply was the words to the Prayer of St. Francis. I don’t know what it is about this particular “prayer” or quote, but to me, I feel as though it expresses my own desire to […]
