Ask God to help you imitate St. Francis of Assisi and his inspiring life of holiness.

St. Francis of Assisi is one of the most popular saints of all time, and his life continues to be an inspiration to believers and non-believers alike.

However, imitating his radical life of holiness can be difficult and is only possible through the grace of God.

Here is the collect prayer for his feast, asking God to help us walk in the way of St. Francis of Assisi.

Lord God, you made Saint Francis of Assisi
Christ-like in his poverty and humility.
Help us so to walk in his ways that,
with joy and love,
we may follow Christ your Son,
and be united to you.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever.
