Happy Francis Day!

In all things
he wished to be conformed to Christ crucified,
who hung on the cross
poor, suffering and naked.
O, he was truly the most Christian of men,
for he strove to conform himself to Christ
and to imitate him perfectly -
while living to imitate Christ living,
dying to imitate Christ dying,
and after death to imitate Christ after death -
and he merited to be honored
with the imprint of Christ's likeness!

- Saint Bonaventure
