A quote from St Francis of Assisi on his feast day:
“Yes, I will console any creature before me that is not laughing or full of passion for their art or life: for laughing and passion — beauty and joy– is our heart’s truth, all else is labor and foreign to the soul.”
Here is a present day St Francis check:
- Do we console all those before us that are sorrowful or lacking in passion?
- Or maybe the real question is….When was the last time you laughed? Do you live with passion, beauty and joy?
For the true quality of our heart is a joyful beauty beyond description. And passionate love, along with laughter, are the life wings of our soaring soul.
