Francis’ Comments on Knowledge

Francis said, in reference to the need for knowledge:

“O My brothers who are led by curious craving for knowledge, will find their hands empty on the day of retribution.” But,” he went on to say; “of course it pleases me, provided that after the example of Christ, of whom we read that he prayed rather than read, they do not neglect the pursuit of prayer and that they study it in order not only to learn how to preach, but to put what they hear into practice, and then when they have practiced it, let them set it down for others to practice. Oh I wish my brothers to be Gospel students and to advance in knowledge of the truth in a way that they likewise grow in unspoiled simplicity.”

Your servant Francis
