He’s my absolute hero!
I’ve nearly finished reading “The Little Flowers of St Francis”, and it’s just like reading little stories straight from Heaven. His Holiness makes me so excited, and makes me want to be such a better person.
Page 92 - The most epic St Francis quote.
The devil was appearing to Brother Ruffino, but disguised himself to look like Jesus, and told him that he was predestined to go to Hell…
St Francis’ advice: ‘When the devil tells you you are damned, you should confidently reply “Apri la bocca et mote cecato” that is, open your mouth and I shall excrete in it’.
Hahahaa! I read this and properly laughed out loud on the train!!
