Overview

From the thirteenth century to the present, Francis of Assisi endures as our best-loved and most-admired saint. He is our companion, brother, friend, teacher and lover of life. This inspiring compendium contains 365 selections—one for each day of the year—drawn from the sayings and writings of Francis as well as from stories about him.

In Through the Year With Francis of Assisi the reader finds a daily source of inspiration, a gentle stimulus towards living a more caring and loving way of life—free of unnecessary entanglements. These specially selected excerpts, grouped under such familiar themes as poverty, love of creation, justice, prayer, death and virtues constitute a personal "day book" that can be treasured and kept at one's side for year-round reflection and meditation. As Bodo explains in his introduction, Francis' way of life and living was that of a pilgrim, and we, too, share the same journey in faith. What better guide, then, than this simple soul who has touched and taught generations of people.
