Therefore, because you are a Saviour, be Jesus to me! I am unwilling, Lord, I am unwilling to pay such attention to my wickedness that I should forget your goodness.’”

The world tries to tame Francis, to reduce him to the patron saint of birdbaths, to see him as merely a great animal lover or (more fashionably) as en ecologist. He was far more than that. Let us remind ourselves right away that Saint Francis of Assisi was possibly the most radical Christian the world had seen since the time of the apostles.

So does anyone else think it’s… interesting that a Christian author would choose Friday to be the “happy day”?

He’s a “Christian author,” in as much as I’m a female ballerina. :P He’s more of a quasi-self help guru from what I’ve heard. :P

It is pleasant to spend time with him, to lie close to his breast like the Beloved Disciple (cf. John 13:25) and to feel the infinite love present in his heart. If in our time Christians must be distinguished above all by the “art of prayer,” how can we not feel a renewed need to spend time in spiritual converse, in silent adoration, in heartfelt love before Christ present in the Most Holy Sacrament? How often, dear brother and sisters, have I experienced this, and drawn from it strength, consolation and support!

Actually, that’s from Blessed Pope John Paul II; none the less, awesome. :)
