Franciscan  Murray Bodo illuminates seven key teachings from St. Francis and shows how these teachings are the foundation for Franciscan spirituality today. Beginning with the wonder of the incarnation, he moves through the paradox of evangelical poverty, living the Gospel, repairing God's house, making peace, the recognition that we are one with all of creation, and the joy and humble service of God. All of these teachings have their roots and destination in the love of God that surrounds all of creation and each individual person.

Another Great Book by Fr. Bodo

For over 30 years, I have read and cherished Fr. Bodo’s books about St. Francis. Each book provides new insights and a deeper understanding of this great saint. Surrounded by Love presents a wonderful description of what it means to be a follower of St. Francis and is applicable to people from all walks of life.

More reasons to love this great saint!

I love this book. As a child, I loved St. Francis because he was so good to the animals (I always prayed for him to protect my pets). As an adult, however, I have learned the depth of his spirituality is an inspiration for all of us. What a wonderful way to renew my faith and commitment to the Lord.
