Two companions from Assisi had already joined St. Francis, when Giles, a well-to-do young man of the town, heard about it. He went to the poor hermitage close by Assisi, which the three occupied; and, prostrate upon his knees, he begged St. Francis to accept him into his company. Francis presented him to the other two, saying: "See here a good brother whom almighty God has sent us." This was on April 23, 1209. On the same day, both went to Assisi, where Giles begged in God's name for a bit of cloth to make a habit. Giles divided his entire fortune among the poor.   -secularfranciscans.org Ave Maria! +++
