Franciscan Father Richard Rohr helps us look beyond the birdbath image of the saint to remind us of the long tradition founded on Francis' revolutionary, radical, and life-changing embrace of the teachings of Jesus.

    Sister Elizabeth Johnson suggests that since Vatican II we have left the path that strove simply for personal perfection. We seek a life that is also integrated and intimate with others in a world community. She defines compassion as "a mode of relationship with others that participates in the suffering of others in such a way that it generates power to resist and to redeem." As we respond to the gospel message, we are moved through the Spirit to confront suffering. We cannot remain indifferent to our calling.

Since that day he has continued to shine a light on the woman he calls "the first pilgrim" and "the perfect disciple".
