st francis and the koran

a freind just emailed me a wonderful quote attributed to saint francis of assisi during a crusade in the middle ages: He had met the Sultan during the Crusades, and returned to Assisi, where he admonished his followers:

If you find even a page of the Qur'an upon the road, pick it up carefully and place it safely in your home for it is a page of a sacred book.
