Spiritual Foundation of Morality: Francis of Assisi & the Christ Impulse
St. Francis exemplifies morality as the middle path. We see a warrior nature transformed into the expression of mercy, compassion, and love. Rudolf Steiner shows the transformation of the virtues through the evolution of consciousness and, above all, through the incarnation of Christ in the Mystery of Golgotha. Since then, morality-if it is true morality-works to build up Christ's being. Therefore Francis sought to live a Christlike life, seeking an intense personal relationship to Christ and the Cross.
