“Francis [of Assisi] could not be a peacemaker until he had peace about his own broken relationship with his father, his lost dreams and his own ‘demons’. It is no different for us. If we want to be peacemakers, we have to confront the wounds and darkness in our own hearts first – otherwise we will always be blaming others for our problems instead of looking at ourselves.”

A quotation from the novel “Chasing Francis” by Ian Morgan Cron.
