In Chapter two of the Secular Franciscan Rule we find the statement, “…going from Gospel to life and life to the Gospel.” This is a process whereby we use the Gospel to discern how we should act in real terms during all our life in each situation. If we develop a real relationship with the Lord through prayer and reading the Gospel then this relationship will change the way we look at the world and other people. The reading and meditation on the Gospel teaches us to change our attitudes. It teaches us to be aware, to discern and to act with love and compassion.
