Following the ways of Jesus: That was how Saint Francis and his brothers were to live their lives, and they would do it by being poor like Christ; by being men of the road like Jesus and his Apostles; by preaching God’s word as Jesus did; by being brothers to one another, to others, and to all creatures; and by the penance of their lives, emptying themselves for love of him who had emptied himself for love of them. And all of it flowed in and out of prayer, the prayer of the mountain, sometimes in darkness, sometimes in light, but always clear in what it moved them to do once they left the mountain.

—from the book Francis and Jesus by Murray Bodo
