Do So With Such Devotion That You Make Others Devout

Francis burned with a love that came from his whole being for the Sacrament of the Lord's Body, and he was carried away with wonder at the loving condescension and the most condescending love shown there... He frequently received Holy Communion and he did so with such devotion that he made others also devout. Showing toward that Sacrament deserving of all reverence all the reverence he could, he offered a sacrifice to all his members; and receiving the Lamb that was offered, he immolated his own spirit with the fire that burned always upon the altar of his heart.

Saint Francis of Assisi
Celano, Second Life
Chapter CLII
