God is not a Possession

“Francis was a mystic, but not a full-time hermit. For him, God was not some kind of prized possession that was to be hoarded and kept from everyone else. Instead, Francis saw the grace of God as a beautiful, previous gift that God intended to be shared with the whole world.”
