I call upon brother Francis to enlighten us today. He was known for his simplicity and his charity. He once said "Preach the gospel at all times; if necessary, use words."
Here is a wonderful poem that speaks of where my heart is today:
enlighten the darkness of my heart
and give me true faith,
and perfect charity,
sense and knowledge,
that I may carry out
Your holy and true command.
- Francis of Assisi
