What does it mean to leave footprints? One has to have feet for walking, and Francis is well known for his devotion to the humanity of Christ. Second, one must travel or go on a journey to leave such marks behind. Third, footprints are clues to the means of locomotion and direction of the traveler. Even though he did travel by boat and mule, Jesus mostly walked, and by following his footprints, one can determine the path he took. Lastly, in order for others to follow his footprints, Jesus had a leave a mark where he traveled. For Francis, the world is capable of receiving the footprints of God’s son, of holding markings which lead us in the way to the Father.
