Hearts on Fire for the Lord

When , Sylvia Paoli, OFS, was elected Minister of St. Francis Region in January of 2009, she took as her motto for the next three years the words "Hearts on Fire for the Lord." 

Having been re-elected as Minister of the Region, the motto remained the same until the conclusion of her term of office in January of 2015.  There are many Scripture references relating to that theme.  Some of them are:  Matt. 3:11; Mk. 9:49; Lk. 3:16; Lk. 12:49; Acts 2:3.  If we are to "rebuild my Church", as God instructed Francis and the charge which we have also been given, then we must have hearts on fire for Him.
