2.1 Genesis and Formation of the Franciscan Rules In his Testament 14-15, Francis writes: “And after the Lord gave me brothers, no one showed me what I had to do, but the Most High Himself revealed to me that I should live according to the pattern of the Holy Gospel. And I had this written down simply and in a few words and the Lord Pope confirmed it for me.”
