Description

This giftbook offers a selection of readings from the Christian spiritual teacher St Francis of Assisi. It includes extracts from letters and anecdotes from the life of the saint, as told by his early followers. There are 30 headings, providing daily meditations for a month. Apart from Jesus himself, St Francis of Assisi is probably the best-loved of all the mystics of the Christian tradition. His vision of God's goodness and richness embraced not only humanity but the whole of creation, and he expressed this vision in prayers and poems of great simplicity. The book is part of "The Wisdom of" series, which aims to introduce people to the rich spiritual heritage of the Christian faith. This includes people who want to explore and develop the spiritual dimension in their lives, but who may be wary of institutional forms of religion and worship. Brother Ramon is the author of "Franciscan Spirtuality", "Heaven and Earth", and the trilogy "Deeper Into God", "A Hidden Fire" and "Fullness of Joy".show more
