Monday, Fourth Week of Lent

“Take a corpse and bring it where you will! It makes no resistance, does not change its attitude, does not wish to move. If you place it on a throne, it looks down and not up; if you dress it in purple, it appears only paler than before. So it is with the really obedient; he never asks why he is sent, he is never concerned as to how he came here, does not seek to be taken away. If he acquires honors, they only increase his humility, and the more he is praised, the more unworthy does he consider himself.” ~St. Francis of Assisi
