Bad Examples

Francis would say, "The time is coming when the Order beloved by God will be spoken ill of because of bad examples, so much so that it will be ashamed to show itself in public."

"...Woe to those who applaud themselves for the mere appearance of the religious life; they will grow numb with sloth and they will not be able to resist steadfastly for only those who have been tried will receive the crown of life, those whom meanwhile the malice of the wicked has put to the test."

Saint Francis of Assisi
Celano, Second Life
Chapter CXVI
