St Francis – on inner peace

“As you announce peace with your mouth, make sure that you have greater peace in your hearts, thus no one will be provoked to anger or scandal because of you. Let everyone be drawn to peace and kindness through your peace and gentleness. For we have been called to this: to cure the wounded, to bind up the  broken, to recall the erring. Many who seem to us members of the devil will yet  be disciples of Christ.”

St. Francis of Assisi, from The Anonymous of Perugia, 38
