Minute Meditations

Living Gospels

It is my presumption that Francis and his brothers became living gospels the same way we do, by walking in the footsteps of Christ, which is a gradual, ongoing pilgrimage. The prayers we say, the prayers we become, change as we walk at different times and in different places and circumstances in our lives; this in turn helps to change for the better the

world we walk in, a world that has its own dynamic, its own changes, some for the better, some for the worse. So, what I write about my own prayer life and our prayer lives describes the same kind of growth or going backwards that Francis and his followers experienced.
