Brothers, look at the humility of God,
and pour out your hearts before Him!
that you may be exalted by Him!
Hold back nothing of yourselves
that He who gives Himself totally to you
may receive you totally!
— St. Francis of Assisi’s Meditation on the Eucharist
St. Francis has always been one of my special patrons. I used to ask him to help me love the poor… Now I ask him to help me become poor myself — simple, little, humble and poor — so I can love Christ the way he loved Him.
