“For, above all the graces and gifts of the Holy Spirit, which Christ has given to His friends, is that of conquering oneself, and suffering willingly for the love of Christ all pain and ill-usage.”
(St. Francis of Assisi, taken from “The Ideals of St. Francis”, Fr. Hilarin Felder, O.F.M. Cap., Benzinger Brothers, 1925)
