Arise- go! Sell all you possess…give it directly, personally to the poor. Take up My cross (their cross) and follow Me – going to the poor- being poor- being one with them- one with Me.

Little- be always little…simple-poor- childlike,

Preach the Gospel with your life- without compromise – listen to the Spirit – He will lead you.

Do little things exceedingly weel for love of Me.

Love-love-love, never counting the cost.

Go into the market place and stay with Me … pray … fast … pray always… fast

Be hidden – be alight to your neighbour’s feet. Go without fears into the depths of men’s hearts . .. I shall be with you.

Pray always. I will be your rest.

Amen.
