|Family Fast Day Prayer||Cafod Leek & Potato Soup|
|St Francis of Assisi, your whole life sang in harmony with God, nature and others.
With you, we praise God for Brother Son, full of beauty and splendour, warming the earth, summoning shoots from darkness in to daylight.
We praise God for Sister Water, so useful and humble, precious and pure, greening arid ground, growing life in desert places.
Pray for us, Francis, that, like you, we may care for all the exists, until Brother Sun and Sister Water produce a harvest shared by all in love and solidarity, justice and peace.
500g leeks, chopped
2 onions, chopped
600g potatoes, diced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 litre veg stock
1 tsp Dijon mustard
Sprinkle the soup with chopped chives – and enjoy!
