Daily Homily

Eph. 6:10-20 & Lk. 13:31-35

To live the life of a Christian is to be in daily warfare with Satan. This is the message from Saint Paul in the First Reading today. And he should know! He fought many battles. So Paul advises us if you want to beat Satan wear God’s armour.



Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you find the homilies of some interest, and will be happy to recommend them to your family and friends.

From a very young age I wanted to be a priest. When I was a young boy in Delhi serving Mass I met a Capuchin priest I admired and so I made up my mind it was to be a Capuchin. One of my ambitions in life is for at least two young men to admire the life I lead and so inspire them to follow in my footsteps. If you feel called to be a Capuchin and you think I can help you, please contact me at or write to me.

Should you want to support my work for the starving in the world, I would be grateful for any donations, no matter how small. Please send these by cheque to Father Francis Maple, at The Franciscan Friary, Pantasaph, Holywell, Flintshire, CH8 8PE.
