QuotationOn his [Dan Walsh] advice, after he had arranged an interview for me, I went to see Father Murphy, at the monastery. On the way down, happening to be wondering and anxious about what would happen, I opened the Little Flowers of Saint Francis I was carrying and read "Brother, this offer (profferta) of yours I accept in the Name of God" or words like that, and I was very happy.
