"For many people, being 'Christian' is roughly equivalent in time and emotional commitment to being a member of a neighborhood bridge club, having a regular seat at the Elks lodge, or getting the family car serviced every three thousand miles. Unfortunately, this type of Christianity is often viewed as just another civic affiliation, acquired habit, or social ritual.
"Not for Francis. In him, the spark of divine love ignited a bonfire that burned away all his indifference and sparked a radical, uncompromising faith. His was no Christianity Lite. He worshiped at the altar of no watered-down deity."
