And by a divine miracle, wherever St. Francis touched him with his holy hands, the leprosy disappeared, and the flesh remained completely healed.
And as externally the water washed the body and the flesh began to heal and be wholly cleansed from leprosy, so too interiorly his soul began to be healed and cleansed.
...St. Francis seeing such a clear miracle which God had performed through his hands, gave thanks to God and left there for a distant region, so that when that miracle became known to the people they should not all run to him, because through humility he wanted to flee any world glory....
