Thomas Merton Quotes: No Matter How Much The Original Rule Of

No Matter How Much The Original Rule Of St. Francis Has Changed, I Think His Spirit And His Inspiration Are Still The Fundamental Thing In Franciscan Life. And It Is An Inspiration Rooted In Joy, Because It Is Guided By The Prudence And Wisdom Which Are Revealed Only To The Little Ones - The Glad Wisdom Of Those Who Have Had The Grace And The Madness To Throw Away Everything In One Uncompromising Rush, And To Walk Around Barefooted In The Simple Confidence That If They Get Into Trouble, God Will Come And Get Them Out Of It Again.
