Our Guiding Vows: Poverty, Chastity, and Obedience

St. Francis would always tell his followers that our profession was the book of life, the hope of salvation, the pledge of glory, the heart of the Gospel, the way of the Cross, the state of perfection, the key of paradise, and the compact of the eternal covenant. He wanted the Rule to be understood and accepted by all, and wished his followers to discuss it in their conferences, and meditate on it frequently by themselves, in order to remind them of their guiding vows (Poverty, Chastity, and Obedience.)
