Religion throughout its history has been used to justify dominance and rightness, a narrative that sadly continues today. St. Francis of Assisi, however, fell in love with a Christ who cultivated humility and connection rather than power and division. This Christ of humility and poverty—depicted by Ilia Delio, OSF, in this Franciscan classic—invites us to contemplate a theology that can heal the separation within ourselves and our divided world today.

ILIA DELIO, O.S.F., is a Franciscan sister. She is associate professor of ecclesiastical history and director of spirituality studies at the Washington Theological Union in Washington, D.C. She is the author of Franciscan Prayer (Franciscan Media), Crucified Love: Bonaventure’s Mysticism of the Crucified Christ (Franciscan Media) and Simply Bonaventure: An Introduction to his Life: Thought and Writings (New City Press).
