Total Rip-off Tuesday

Wherein I "rip-off" another writer or artist.  Not taking credit, just passing on some good stuff.  Today's choice, St. Francis of Assisi, whom I aspire to follow:

Listen, sons of the Lord and my brothers, pay attention to my words. Incline the ear of your heart and obey the voice of the Son of God. Observe His commands with your whole heart and fulfill His counsels with a perfect mind. Give praise to Him since He is good and exalt Him by your deeds, for He has sent you into the entire world for this reason, that in word and deed you may give witness to His voice and bring everyone to know that there is no one who is all-powerful except Him. Persevere in discipline and holy obedience and with a firm and good purpose fulfill what you have promised to Him. The Lord God offers Himself to us as to His children.
Therefore, kissing your feet and with all that love of which I am capable, I implore all of you brothers to show all possible reverence and honor to the most holy Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ in whom that which is in the heavens and on the earth is brought to peace and is reconciled to the all-powerful God.
