With Eyes Directed Toward The Ground

With their eyes directed toward the gound, the brothers clung to heaven with their minds. No envy, no malice, no rancor, no abusive speech, no suspicion, no bitterness found any place in them; but great concord, continual quiet, thanksgiving, and the voice of praise were in them. These were the teachings of their beloved St. Francis, by which he formed his new sons, not by words alone, but above all in deeds and in truth.

Saint Francis of Assisi
Celano - First Life
Chapter XV
