Saint Francis of Assisi lived only forty-four years, yet in his short lifetime, he managed to reform the entire Roman Catholic Church'not through revolution and dissent, but through gracious persuasion and his own living example of an authentic gospel life. Eight hundred years later, he is still revered across spiritual traditions as perhaps the most beloved saint. With Saint Francis of Assisi, Mirabai Starr offers readers an elegant book of prayers, poems, and contemplative writings to inspire readers with the lessons of his life. From his survival as a prisoner of war to the series of awakenings that led him to create an order of the Catholic Church that to this day bears his name, Francis? life was in constant evolution. Saint Francis of Assisi helps readers call upon the spirit of this modest Italian sage to guide their own lives with his eternal devotion to the divine, and his profound compassion toward all living things.
