...in reverence will I bow down toward your holy temple.
Lead me, O Lord, in your righteousness... - Psalm 5: 7b-8a
Renaissance Restoration Studios, Joseph Tiedmann
One day a rather worldly friend asked St. Francis:
"Father what do you do during those long hours
before the Blessed Sacrament?"
"My son in return I ask you
what does the poor man do at the rich man's door,
the sick man in presence of his physician,
the thirsty man at a limpid stream?
What they do, I do before the Eucharistic God.
I pray. I adore. I love."
