St. Francis states:

“No man ought wickedly to pride himself upon such things as a sinner can do. A sinner,” he said, “can fast, pray, weep, mortify his flesh; this only he cannot do – be faithful to his Lord. In this, then, we may glory – if we give Him the glory which is due to Him, if we serve Him faithfully, if we ascribe all HIs gifts to Him.”
