Ask anyone who has been there: Assisi is a special place. The events in the lives of Francis and Clare seem to have charged the very rocks with a power that can still be felt today. Our guide, Father Roch Niemier, is intimately acquainted with the places so close to the saints of Assisi Rocca Maggiore, San Damiano, the Porziuncola, San Rufino, La Verna, Greccio, Maddalena, the Piazza Comune and the streets of Assisi. His exploration of the spirituality of place makes even the armchair pilgrim understand the meaning of these locales, and provides an unforgettable remembrance for those who have made the journey themselves.

This was possibly the best book I have read on Saints Francis and Clare. Though I was already acquainted with much of the information presented as I love these two Saints it was presented in a new and refreshing way. I could easily loose myself in the beautiful pictures and the lives of Francis and Clare. Loved it and so glad I splurged (limited income)! and bought it!

Franciscan Book Review: Footsteps of Francis and Clare

From this book, I learned the concept of "spirituality of place" and applied it as an "armchair pilgrim, while reading about the 34 locations Fr. Niemier described therein.

The title fits St. Anthony perfectly

I love this book it is easy to read and explains in every chapter the places he loved to visit to pray and contemplate in Assisi. A beautiful book and I would love to see these hideaways and walk the streets of Assisi.


Sorry i have not read it yet. Looking forward to doing so..
