Fr. Matthias introduces us to two modern saintly Franciscans, Bl. Gabriel Allegra and St. Padre Pio, and holds them us as examples to imitate and rebukes to our tepidity. He also shows that the Franciscan Saints form a "chain" which links us to St. Francis and assures our fidelity to the Franciscan vocation. Finally, he challenges us to surpass in sanctity the Franciscan saints, even St. Francis himself, a task only possible by totally dedicating ourselves to the Immaculate. Ave Maria!
