Collect for St Francis of Assisi

Most high, omnipotent, good Lord, grant your people grace to renounce gladly the vanities of this world; that, following the way of blessed Francis, we may for love of you delight in your whole creation with perfectness of joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Amen and a thousand more amens.
St Francis is my favourite saint just because of his love for 'the whole creation'.
Thanks, Ray! I love that whole "whole creation" thing, too.
