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.
