St. Francis Receiving the Stigmata

Double (1955 Calendar): September 17

Today, September 17th, is the Commemoration of the Impression of the Sacred Stigmata which St. Francis, received on his hands, feet, and side at Mount Alverina in Etruria. While not a feastday on the revised 1969 Calendar of Saints, the feastday is still part of the Traditional Catholic Calendars.


O Lord Jesus Christ, Who, when the world was growing cold, in order to enkindle in our hearts the fire of Thy love, didst renew the sacred makers of Thy Passion on the body of blessed Francis: mercifully grant, that with the aid of his merits and prayers we may ever bear our cross, and bring forth worthy fruits of penance: Who livest and reignest.
