“If you learn everything except Christ, you learn nothing. If you learn nothing except Christ, you learn everything.” ~St. Bonaventure
O God of wisdom and of love, you inflamed Saint Bonaventure with the love of Christ, who is your wisdom and your power. Through his intercession, pour out into your Church anew each day the burning fire of the Holy Spirit to inflame all hearts with the wisdom of the cross. 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. Amen.
