Thursday Quote

"If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men."

"While you are proclaiming peace with your lips, be careful to have it even more fully in your heart."

-St. Francis of Assisi


  1. While at our Fall Yoga and Meditation Retreat in Frankfort (Franciscan Center for Prayer), I bought a book in their small, but nicely stocked bookstore. It’s titled ‘The Franciscan Heart of Thomas Merton’. Merton has long been an inspiration for me, and this book explains how the spiritual inspiration of Merton’s life, thought, and writing has been influenced by St. Francis. This is a very good read.
