Francis and Clare of Assisi have a special appeal for many people. They lived life to the full, and attained remarkable simplicity and freedom in their relationship with God and the whole of creation. What was their secret? And what can they say to us today as we struggle to pray and to live out the gospel in a complex and often bewildering world? In answering such questions Sister Frances Teresa offers profound insight into the spirituality of two great human beings. Above all else, Francis and Clare put themselves totally and fearlessly in the hands of the living God: they sought no hiding place, but clung to their choice of Lady Poverty, knowing that any compromise would soon lead to a heart too cluttered to receive the fullness of God's love. In telling the intertwined stories of Francis and Clare, this book helps us to understand more clearly the call of the gospel in our own lives.
