Parallel Texts from Pope Francis and Brother Charles- 'Do as I would have done'

Pope Francis

‘In this way the Word of God is made flesh, it is made flesh in those who receive it in prayer. The intuition emerges in some ancient texts that Christians identify so completely with the Word that, even If all the Bibles in the world were to be burned, its “mould” would still be saved because of the imprint it has left on the life of the saints. This is a beautiful expression.’

Brother Charles:

‘Your rule: to follow me, to do what I would do. Ask yourself in everything: What would Our lord have done? And do it. This is the only rule you have, but it is an absolute rule.’
