When Approached By Beggars

When Francis was approached by beggars, he was not content merely to give what he had - he wanted to give his whole self to them. At times he took off his clothes and gave them away, or ripped or tore pieces of them, if he had nothing else at hand. He came to the aid of priests who were in need, respectfully and devoutly, especially when it concerned the upkeep of the altar. In this way he earned a share in the homage offered to God, while relieving the needs of those who pay homage to Him.
