Soon, there was a knock on the door of the tiny hut, near the chapel which served as an infirmary.
Jacopa had arrived with her sons and was allowed to enter, though customarily women were not admitted to the monastery. Jacopa had brought all the things which Francis had requested, including the sweets made with almonds, sugar, honey, and other ingredients, called mostaccioli [spicy, chocolaty cake-like cookies with almonds] in Rome.
Today, in Umbria, these sweets are still made in Francis' memory. Jacopa also brought Francis a red silk cushion, adorned with her family's coat of arms, and her bridal veil, embroidered with these words:"Ama, ama, ama = Love, love, love". Jacopa related to Francis that while she was praying in Rome, she had heard a voice from heaven, saying that he would soon pass from this life, and that he would ask for the very things which she had now brought him.
