St. Francis Farewell to His Brothers
"Farewell, all you my sons, in the fear of the Lord (Ecclus. 9:22), and may you remain in him always! And because a future temptation and tribulation is approaching, happy will they be who will persevere in the the things they have begun. I am hastening to the Lord, to whose grace I commend you all." (Omnibus, 208)
