Famous Quotes that Got it Wrong: St. Francis of Assisi

Not too long ago, in the span of a few of days, I saw several people refer to a quote attributed to St. Francis of Assisi in the most glowing terms.

“Every day preach the Gospel, and if necessary, use words.”

Doesn’t that sound profound? I wish I could come up with a phrase people would quote hundreds of years after I die. Eh, it’s unlikely. Anyway, back to the quote. What is this often quoted, simple, ten-word sentence saying? Let’s break it down.
