Love For Churches

As St. Francis teaches, if a church is standing any place whatsoever, even though we are not present there but can see it from a distance, we are to prostrate ourselves upon the ground in its direction and, having bowed low with body and soul, are to adore Almighty God, saying, "We adore Thee oh Christ and we praise You, here and in all Thy churches!" And what is no less to be admired, wherever we see a crucifix or mark of a cross, whether upon the ground, or upon a wall, or on trees, or in the hedges along the way, we are to do the same thing.

Saint Francis of Assisi
Celano, First Life
Chapter XVII
