Pax et Bonum! With God's grace I will begin again, and someone may actually read this. My inspiration was a retreat on Bonaventure's great work, Itinerarium Mentis in Deum, given by Andre Cirino OFM and Joseph Raischl, OFS. It was a graced retreat and reminded me why I love Bonaventure and his Franciscan approach to theology, prayer, and the life of grace. So, may he help me glorify God in some small way...

Holy Thursday

"Therefore, if I, the Lord and Master, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash the feet of one another." He did that he might be imitated. For he performed miracles which is something we cannot imitate,..He also performed works of humility to be imitated.
--Commentary on John XIII.18 (Karris, Works of St. Bonaventure XI, p. 695)
