Overview

Camine con Francisco y sus seguidores en una jornada de oracian, de pobreza y de paz. En Sus Huellas es una invitacian no solo para rezar, sino para convertirse en una oracian; no solo paraliberarse del materialismo, sino para amar la pobreza; no solo para cultivar la pazinterior, sino para convertirse en un conciliador.

Francisco entrega todo su ser ala presencia de Dios.
No buscaba solorezar sino convertirse en una oracian.
'Thomas de Celano c. 1229

Walk with Francis and his ealy followers on a journey of prayer, poverty and peace. In His Footsteps is an invitation not only to pray, but to become a prayer; not only to be free of material craving, but to love poverty; not only to cultivate interior peace, but to become peacemakers.

Francis surrendered his whole self to the presence of God.
He sought not to pray, but to become a prayer.
'Thomas of Celano, c. 1229

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

An interesting book written from experience, reflection and prayer.
The Furrow

Klein shows readers how to find spiritual meaning in what they might otherwise think of as just casual entertainment, hardly more than ‘vanities.’
Review for Religious

Delightful, innovative, and always provocative, Vanity Faith reveals how God can be found in the movies and on television, and how popular culture can teach you more about your faith than you could have ever dreamed. Perfect for anyone who lives in a world of pop culture—in other words, everyone!
James Martin, SJ, Author of My Life with the Saints

When religious folk talk about Hollywood, it’s usually to bash Show Biz. Fr. Terrance Klein, however, brilliantly finds a story of redemption in I Love Lucy, and echoes of Jeremiah’s laments in the breakup between Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt. If you’ve ever found yourself watching an old movie and humming the ‘Panis Angelicus’ at the same time, wondering what the one has to do with the other, this is the book for you. Klein patrols the intersection between faith and culture with great panache.
