Francis with His Arms Spread Out
The realization begins. With the Lord in his heart and extreme joy on his face, Francis takes the grand news and hurries back to his father’s house. “It’s a new day! Can you feel the joy?” he exclaims to his parents Pica and Peter. He says his goodbyes and explains, “From this day on I give up all worldly goods and say My Father in heaven.” Francis followed the gospel of Jesus from this day on, and walked in the footsteps of His Lord.
