QuotationIn Dom David Knowles' new book (Religious Orders in England [volume I of 3, Cambridge, 1948]) I found a few fine sentences on St. Francis and they got me all up in the air about poverty. Still, with the grace of God I might be able to do something about it, because it doesn't seem to be much use in going on as I am now. Today we were cleaning out that room and I got rid of a lot of things I don't really need.
