Francis was born in 1182. 
When he was around 25, he renounced all his material possessions, and devoted himself to serving the poor.
Francis lived with lepers, fed them, and helped them heal their wounds.
He built his own church - stone by stone - from ruins of an old one.
He got his meals, collecting discarded vegetables, or working as a laborer, insisting to be paid with food rather than money. 
The Franciscan taught that Christ and the twelve apostles had no property.
This view was declared to be heretical. 
In 1318, Church burned at the stake several Spiritual Franciscans for teaching against property...


I think God might be a little prejudiced.

For once He asked me to join Him on a walk
through this world,

and we gazed into every heart on this earth,
and I noticed He lingered a bit longer
before any face that was

and before any eyes that were


And sometimes when we passed
a soul in worship


God too would kneel


I have come to learn: God
adores His
