Divine Child Jesus, I love You with my whole heart

St. Francis of Assisi and the mason.

St. Francis (d. 1226) once passed by a mason and greeted him in a friendly manner. Then the conversation started and the Saint asked: “Master, what are you doing here? – I work as a mason all day long. – But why? – But to earn money. – And the reason why you want to earn money? – To buy bread. – Why bread? – But to live. – And why do you live?” asked the Saint at last. The mason, who was already bored by this questioning, hesitated and did not know how to answer. St. Francis reminded him of this and instructed him on the true destiny of man.

Many men do not think about their reason for being on earth. God created us to know Him, to love Him and to serve Him in this world, in order to be happy one day with Him in Heaven for all Eternity.
