The Franciscan Ideal

Vos, Sancti Dei inclyti
Qui estis mente lucidi
Franciscum imitate,
Orate ut intrepidi
Hic simus semper fervidi
Et postmodum beati.

This liturgical antiphon in honor of the saints of the Franciscan Order points out the three principal means of perpetuating Franciscan perfection : retaining undimmed the Franciscan ideal; expressing it by heroic action; sustaining it by fervent prayer. The last words of the antiphon, "Et postmodum beati," assure us of the recompense promised to the faithful imitators of our seraphic Father.  -  (from) Franciscan Perfection.
