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"
Sister Colette
(Abbess, Poor Clares Monastery, Galway City, Ireland)

"In these pages, words and images take us far beyond a Francis of the birds and the bees. Here is captured the profound simplicity of the Gospel Way which he embodied and whichhis followers have continued. Allow slow reading and a lingering gaze to take you throughCreation to its Source and to the Word Made Flesh."
Bishop Brian M.Noble
(Spirituality Committee of the RC Bishops' Conference of England and Wales)

"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 abetter, bigger, and so much needed world."
Richard Rohr, OFM
(Center for Action and Contemplation Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA)
