For St. Francis of Assisi, his interior life took precedence over all else. His primary desire was to have a mindful openness to God at all times. St. Bonaventure tells us that when Francis was deep in prayer he became “oblivious of all that went on about him” and that he often became “lost in ecstasy.” That does not happen to many of us…and I suspect it doesn’t because we don’t give enough time to prayer.
