Trusting in the Father, Christ chose for himself and his mother a poor and humble life, even though he valued created things attentively and lovingly. Let the Secular Franciscans seek a proper spirit of detachment from temporal goods by simplifying their material needs. Let them be mindful that according to the gospel they are stewards of the goods received fore the benefit of God’s children. (OFS Rule, #11)
