St. Francis and the Leper
This legend of St. Francis of Assisi returned to me as I wrote “In the Midst of Our Storms.” On the one hand, it sums up one key direction of the spiritual life of each disciple. Embracing that which we find abhorrent in our own lives – and being embraced by Christ in that “place” – is vital to the growth of any follower of Jesus. On the other hand and at the very same time, it points disciples toward that same kind of relationship with any and all whom we find abhorrent. Can’t do one without the other. See what this video elicits from you.
