Translator's blog

From the translator’s journal ~Franciscan Prayer~

*Clare indicates in her writings that as one sees the sufferings of Christ in the other, so one is to love.
*Wisdom is knowledge deepened by love; it is an experiential knowledge of God.
*The cross is the book in which the entire wisdom of Christ is written.
*One who “puts on Christ” in one’s own life and sees the suffering of Christ in the other must ultimately love like Christ by way of compassionate love. Contemplation is seeing with the eyes of the heart.
*Engagement with the other becomes an engagement with God.
*All things are in Christ and Christ is in all things, and that loving our neighbor in Christ is the path to unity in God.
