[Francis] suddenly rose up to give praise, as if his only glory was this:  hearing good things about the brothers.  He burst out from the depths of his heart:  "I give you thanks Lord, Sanctifier and Guide of the poor, you who have gladdened me with this report about the brothers!  Bless those brothers, I beg you, with a most generous blessing, and sanctify with a special gift all those who make their profession fragrant through good example!"

The Remembrance of the Desire of a Soul, Thomas of Celano
