Max Hightstein, an Associate of the Order of Franciscan Hermits offers another wonderful Guided Meditation to help "Open Your Spiritual Heart with Saint Francis" - 21 Lessons on Love, From the Writings of Saint Francis.
This is another BEAUTIFUL guided meditation by Max Highstein. Your Guardian Angel is right in front of you, and has been with you from the moment you were born, watching over you, loving you, and doing everything possible to help you stay on your path.
In this program you’ll revisit times when your guardian angel has intervened in your life, helped you through tough times, and led you toward the light. Then you’ll use your heart and higher mind to see, feel, and hear your Guardian Angel directly. You’ll experience their presence, hear their message to you, and feel closer to them than ever before.
"In his address to the friars, the Holy Father focused on two “essential elements” of Franciscan identity: “minority” (It: minorità), a spirit of littleness; and “fraternity.”The spirit of being a “minor,” he said, “calls one to be and to feel that one is little before God, entrusting oneself totally to His infinite mercy.” The recognition of one’s littleness and sinfulness allows a person to receive salvation. Those on the other hand, who do not feel needy cannot receive the mercy and salvation God offers them. “Minority,” the Pope continued, also means going out of oneself, beyond structures, attitudes, and feelings of security, in order to bear concrete witness of God’s mercy to the poor and needy “in an authentic attitude of sharing and service.”
