Who Said It? Pope Francis or Saint Francis?
Can you tell who said the following quotes?
"You cannot all abandon your possessions, but at least you can change your attitude about them. All getting separates you from others; all giving unites to others."
"A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows."
"We have only one heart, and the same wretchedness which leads us to mistreat an animal will not be long in showing itself in our relationships with other people."
"We have been called to heal wounds, to unite what has fallen away, and to bring home those who have lost their way. Many who seem to us to be children of the Devil will still become Christ's disciples."
"Everything is related, and we human beings are united as brothers and sisters on a wonderful pilgrimage, woven together by the love God has for each of his creatures and which also unites us in fond affection with brother sun, sister moon, brother river and mother earth."
Yet we are called to be instruments of God our Father, so that our planet might be what he desired when he created it and correspond with his plan for peace, beauty and fullness.
Lord, grant that I might not so much seek to be loved as to love.
