“If St. Francis had been sent to a Siberian labor camp, or a leper colony, or a Wall Street Brokerage firm, would he be any less St. Francis? But how many mortals there are in the world who are one kind of character in need, another kind of character in plenty, who grumble amidst the uncomfortable, and who become possessed by possessions. St. Francis remains the same in all circumstances; the non-St. Francis types, like a chameleon, take on the color of the leaf on which they rest. Why the difference? Because St. Francis is more free.”
