We Are the Wolf: A Francisan Koan


When Francis said to the wolf of Gubbio: “Brother Wolf, you have done great harm in this region, and you have committed horrible crimes by destroying God’s creatures without any mercy… You therefore deserve to be put to death just like the worst robber and murderer. Consequently everyone is right in crying out against you and complaining, and this whole town is your enemy,” we should take note that he is speaking directly to us. We all have done great harm at some point in our lives. We all are deserving of death for our horrible crimes. We are the wolf.
