GOD'S CALL TO PRAY FOR THE SALVATION OF SOULS IS NO SMALL THING, BUT EVEN THE SMALLEST OF SOULS CAN SAY YES TO HIS CALL.

From The Little Flowers of Saint Francis translated by Raphael Brown

"...Now when a man named Lord Silvester saw St. Francis giving away so much money to the poor and causing it to be given away, he was seized with greed and said to St. Francis: 'You did not pay me all you owe me for those stones you bought from me to repair the churches.' Then St. Francis, marveling at his greed and not wishing to argue with him, as a true observer of the Gospel -- giving to everyone who asked -- put his hands in the Lord Bernard's bosom and then placed them, filled with money, in the Lord Silverster's bosom. And he said; 'If you ask for more, I will give you still more.'..."
