What a great laudable exchange

by Clare of Assisi

English version by Regis J. Armstrong, OFM CAP & Ignatius C. Brady, OFM
Original Language Italian

What a great laudable exchange:
     to leave the things of time for those of eternity,
     to choose the things of heaven for the goods of earth,
     to receive the hundred-fold in place of one,
     and to possess a blessed and eternal life.

-- from Francis and Clare: The Complete Works: The Classics of Western Spirituality, Translated by Regis J. Armstrong, OFM CAP / Translated by Ignatius C. Brady, OFM
