The Sin of Appropriation

When we think of possessions, we usually have material things in mind, but St. Francis used to remind his brothers that possessions are material and spiritual, anything we appropriate to ourselves. For him it is not possessions that are sinful, but possessiveness, appropriating to ourselves what is not ours.

Admonition 2

Blessed Are The Peacemakers

"Blessed are the peacemakers; they shall be recognized as children of God" (Matthew 5:9).

They are truly peacemakers who, in all their suffering in this world for love of our Lord Jesus Christ, preserve their peace of soul and body.
