On two ''simple'' words ( wisdom of St. Francis)

''Preach the Gospel always, and if necessary, use words" (Saint Francis of Assisi)

This statement of Saint Francis seems to be simple and easy to understand at first glance.
Yet it is not easy to put it into action, to really live in accordance with these words.

Where is the point of such proposal?

We are obliged to be "true practitioners of Christianity" for one simple reason:
there will be no future believers in the world devoid of true love for Jesus.
And the true love can only be defined as a sacrificial action.

Now we reach the conclusion : mere words have nothing to do neither with action nor with sacrifice.

Pray for me, please.

Tomasz, Racibórz
