The Kinship of Saint Francis - 727 

[Chapter V]

[THE CONVERSION AND INSTRUCTION OF THE PEOPLE]a

36 By now the blessed father Francis was similar to Christ in the conversion and instruction of the people. For as Christ preached to believers and non-believers and sent disciples to preach the Gospel throughout the world and subjected rulers and the learned to the humility of faith, so blessed Francis both by himself and by his brothers filled the whole world with the gospel teaching, and subjected those of every worldly and ecclesiastical rank to the humility of his Order.
