Thought for This Moment

By Michael Lewin

Saint Francis of Assisi, at the close of each day, said to his companion Brother Leo, “Let’s begin again, for until now we have done nothing.” The spiritual life of Saint Francis was grounded in a questioning mind and an attentive heart, and this led him to discover new beginnings (again and again) in his desire to serve. There was never a sense of completeness or finality in his work. By staying fresh and open to unfolding events he brought both clarity and compassion into his life and the lives of others.
