Mankind Engulfed In Three Evil Forces

Poverta V V in Assisi

Before Francis began preaching sermons to the people they met, in passing through towns and castles he exhorted all men and women to fear God and to do penance for their sins, while Brother Giles exhorted them to believe and to follow the excellent counsels of Francis.

When the people heard them, they said: "Who are these men, and why do they speak like this?" They made this comment because at that time the fear and love of God had died out in the country and no one spoke of penance which indeed was considered as folly. This attitude was caused by temptations of the flesh, the cupidity of the world, and the pride of life; the whole of mankind seemed engulfed in these three evil force.
