'The Wounds of Love'

St. Francis of Assisi

Whom I myself shall see:
my own eyes, not another's, shall behold him,
And from my flesh I shall see God;
my inmost being is consumed with longing.

- Job 19:27-26

St. Francis of Assisi compels us. In his radical discipleship, his single-mindedness, his compassion, he draws us, not simply to himself, but to Christ. What I find so striking about St. Francis was that so many considered him a failure. When he died after years of terrible physical suffering, the movement of penitence and poverty that bore his name was already strained and would soon divide it into fractious elements.

Whenever I am tempted to judge my life according to worldly standards of success, "good" results and fruitful planning, I remember Francis on his deathbed: blind, in pain, sadly aware of his brothers' diverging paths. And I remember what matters: that he bore the wounds of Love on his body, conforming himself to that Love, waiting to see with his own eyes.

Jesus, I give my life over to you.

- Amy Welborn
