Lent with St. Francis, Saturday of 3rd week of Lent

I did not come to be served but to serve (Mt. 20:28), our Lord tells us. Those who are put in charge of others should be no prouder of their office than if they had been appointed to wash the feet of their confreres. They should be no more upset at the loss of their authority then they would be if they were deprived of the task of washing feet. The more they are upset, the greater the risk they incur to their souls. - St. Francis, The Admonitions
