The St. Francis Prayer Book
This warm-hearted little book is a window into the soul of St. Francis, one of the most passionate and inspiring followers of Jesus. Prayer was to Francis as play is to a child: natural, easy, creative, and joyful, author Jon Sweeney tells us. Before it became common to speak in personal terms of a relationship with God, Francis did so, and made it seem natural. With this guide, readers will:
* Pray the words that Francis taught his spiritual brothers and sisters to pray.
* Explore Francis's time and place and feel the joy and earnestness of the first Franciscans.
* Experience how it is possible to live a contemplative and active life, at the same time. Unique features: Includes well-loved prayers of Francis, such as The Canticle of Brother Sun and Lord, Make Me an Instrument of Thy Peace Pen-and-ink illustrations
