Reflections on Assisi

img_0062

It’s hard to have a secular holiday in Italy. But when Assisi is so beautiful who needs to.

And it’s impressive to watch the devout Catholics queuing up to pray in front of St Francis’ displayed coffin.

But for us it was the beauty of the place. Caught in a magical sunlight, built of white and pink limestone. We climbed up to the fort high above the town and read about the warfare across the valley centuries ago between Assisi and Perugia. Seems nothing changes in life. We used to fight our neighbouring town – today we fight globally.

Maybe world leaders need to take more inspiration from St Francis.
