The Gospel Calls Us to Live Simply | Image: PixabayWhen you agree to live simply, you can understand what Francis meant when he said, “A brother has not given up all things if he holds onto the purse of his own opinions.” Most of us find out that this purse is far more dangerous and disguised than a money purse, and we seldom let go of it.

–from the book Eager to Love: The Alternative Way of Francis of Assisi
