History of the Church: Bonaventura Poisoned?

On July 15, 1274, Benedictine Monk Bonaventura suddenly died. He was rumored to be poisoned because he was a spiritualist, (those that wanted to continue in the strict Benedictine Rule)  in a battle with the Relaxti who wanted to relax the strict Benedictine Rule. When the world calls us against what God has called us to, we must restate what Jesus said to his apostles; "Get behind me you devils! I am called to worship God alone." 

May my heart ever hunger after and feed upon You, Whom the angels desire to look upon, and may my inmost soul be filled with the sweetness of Your savor; may it ever thirst for You, the fountain of life, the fountain of wisdom and knowledge, the fountain of eternal light, the torrent of pleasure, the fulness of the house of God; may it ever compass You, seek You, find You, run to You, come up to You, meditate on You, speak of You, and do all for the praise and glory of Your name..."
