Overview

St. Francis of Assisi (born Giovanni Francesco di Bernardone; 1181/1182 – October 3, 1226) was an Italian Catholic friar best known for founding the Franciscan Order, as well as founding the woman’s Order of St. Clare and the lay Third Order of Saint Francis. St. Francis is one of the most celebrated religious figures in history. He is known as the patron saint of animals, the environment and one of the two patrons of Italy (with Catherine of Siena), and it is customary for Catholic and Anglican churches to hold ceremonies blessing animals on his feast day every October 4.

Not surprisingly, his writings talk of nature being vibrant and alive, including in this anthology. The Writings of St. Francis of Assisi includes a wide sampling of his writings, including the transcendent Canticle of the Sun, a prayer which lucidly describes a universe alive with joy, and praises “Brother Sun...Sister Moon...Mother Earth.”

This edition of The Writings of St. Francis of Assisi is specially formatted with a Table of Contents.
