In Words Taught By The Spirit

The Road to San Damiano

From the Portiuncula, Francis set out as a herald of the Gospel to preach the kingdom of God in the towns and villages in the vicinity, "not in such words as human wisdom, but in words taught him by the Spirit" (1Cor 2, 13). To those who saw him he seemed like a man from another world as, with his gaze fixed on heaven where his heart always dwelt, he tried to lift their thoughts on high. As a result of his efforts the supernatural vineyard of Christ began to put forth shoots which gave out a pleaseing fragrance before God and produced fruit in abundance, lush and rich.
