During the height of the clash, yesterday, on the day in which the Pope was scheduled to visit Sapienza, this glory showed up.
It was 9:30 in the morning and raining. This monk had come from Assisi, in his rags and with no shoes, to pray amongst the students - whom he loved. So humbled by this I didn't even know what to do. So I, too, prayed in his company.
Can we have holiness (=witness) like this in the rest of the world?

Wow, I never saw a monk like that in Assisi!
Do you mean "monk" or "friar"? Not the same thing. God bless.
Well, he described himself as a "monk" who lives in Assisi.
Actually, I just saw him again today at the Vatican. It turns out he's a layman who belongs to a community in Assisi of lay "monks."
