"Lighten up, Francis..."
When it's so obvious that we are called to be like this one...
Francis of Assisi (from The Flowers of St. Francis - 1950)
...why is it so much easier to behave like this one?
Francis Sawyer (from Stripes- 1981)
Well, the example of "Pyscho" Francis Sawyer may be somewhat of an exaggeration on this particular point, and the scene from Stripes was pretty funny in its own way, but it is also a societal indictment. "I, me, mine..." The chickens hatched out of of all this bitter and belligerent selfishness are coming home to roost.
Why are we the way we are? Makes me wonder if the Calvinists and other hyper-Augustinian types have a point in standing so self-convicted by Romans 7 as their byword.
