A Voice from the Past - Francis of Assisi

Such was the will of the Father that his Son, blessed and glorious, whom he gave to us, and who was born for us, should by his own blood, sacrifice, and oblation, offer himself on the altar of the cross, not for himself, by whom "all things were made," but for our sins, leaving us an example that we should follow his steps.

Francis of Assisi,1182-1226, Letter to all the Faithful,  (From Wikiquote)

How should we who are not, at least currently, in immediate danger of martyrdom, follow the example of Christ? Are there right and wrong ways to do this?
