On Hiatus

Pax et bonum, thanks for visiting. I'm going to be taking a little bit of a break from FQotD to work on some other projects so I won't be posting any new quotes for a while. In the meantime, please visit one of those other projects, Digital Franciscans, where we are working to collect links to as many Franciscan websites as we can find. Quotes that have already been posted will remain available.

The Pope’s briefcase

Pope Francis’s engagement with the Divine Office is an inspiring example of the fruitfulness that comes from a patient and faithful participation in the liturgy of the Church. Let us pray that more people may move beyond their fascination with the Pope’s briefcase, and come to know the treasures that lie within.

The way of perfection…

He would tell his sons that she was the way of perfection, the pledge and earnest of eternal riches. No one was so greedy of gold as he of poverty; no one more careful in guarding a treasure than he in guarding this pearl of the Gospel.

Grant me the treasure of sublime poverty…

Grant me the treasure of sublime poverty: permit the distinctive sign of our order to be that it does not possess anything of its own beneath the sun, for the glory of your name, and that it have no other patrimony than begging.

~St. Francis of Assisi
