The second in a series of publications designed to introduce the reader to the major spiritual traditions of Western Catholicism. Beautifully designed and illustrated with stunning photographs, the authors offer in this work an unfolding picture of Franciscan spirituality through carefully chosen themes. Quotations from many Franciscan sources, from Francis of Assisi onwards, provide a glimpse of the breadth and depth of Franciscan living.
“This wonderful book touches the soul. These pages give a glimpse of
the divine beauty that so captivated the hearts of Francis and Clare.”
Sr Colette, Abbess, Poor Clare Monastery, Galway City.
“Sometimes the text is fine, sometimes the pictures are lovely,
but here they are both brilliant! Here you may use
your mind, your eyes, your heart, and your imagination
to be led into a better, bigger and so much needed world.”
Richard Rohr, OFM,
Center for Action and Contemplation, Albuquerque.
