Giving Alms: Behavior Deserving Of God's Praise

When Francis encouraged his followers to quest for alms, he used to say, "Go, because in these last days the Order has been given to the world for its benefit, so that the elect may behave towards them in such a way as to deserve the praise of the Judge on the day of judgment and hear the words, 'When you did it to one of the least of my brethren here, you did it to me' " (Matthew 25:40). Therefore, he said that it was wonderful to be able to beg.
