Assisi

St. Francis of Assisi (1181 or 1182 - October 3, 1226)
It is no use walking anywhere to preach
unless our walking is our preaching.
Francis of Assisi


Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Francis of Assisi
If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men.
Francis of Assisi

So, exactly how many bedrooms (or sleeping nooks) will you have? I'm assuming enough to accommodate all of your bloggy friends, including me? Very inviting pictures...
