Francis of Assisi

St. Bonaventure said of his holy father Francis that he was a true teacher because he learned the truth of God’s revelation, gave his whole heart to what was being taught by Christ, and did not forget what he’d been taught because he put what he learned into practice. So, in the end, Francis’ teachings are concretized and made visible in his choices and in his practices, which are the result of hearing and living the truth given him by Christ.
