Readings from Jonah, Malachi and Joel are from post exilic times, the commentators say, when the Jews returned from exile may see Judaism as exclusive and turn inward. God sends Jonah to Nineveh, representative of the outside world, and converts that great city. God’s plans are greater than ours.
Francis of Assisi had his arms open to the world.
Morning and evening prayers here.
