Wow, great question. It is not easy to answer in few words.. the top of my head, I think Francis of Assisi was able to achieve a certain kind of freedom in your mind and spirit - in your heart and life - that few really grasp in this life. He seemed to know that this world is passing away. He seems to realize that life was fleeting and eternity was only apprehended through grabbing life by following Jesus Christ.. Francis truly found, or "achieved", freedom and release. The freedom to serve others that the world would otherwise throw away. In its day, it was the lepers. In them, is achieved and the 'crucifixion' of himself, and risen from the communion with Christ..
