Memorial of St Francis of Assisi

Today being the Memorial of St Francis of Assisi, I offer you a quote from G.K. Chesterton's acclaimed biography of St Francis. It has special meaning to me because my wife wrote this quotation in a note to me after our fourth son was born.
With the fourth man enters the shadow of a mob; the group is no longer one of three individuals only conceived individually.
- G.K. Chesterton. St. Francis, chapter VII.
