Rigid, formulaic depictions of prayer have often indicated our distance from God rather than our closeness. From Francis to Clare to Bonaventure, Franciscans have discovered how the immensity of God has become intimate and immediate. In this Franciscan classic, Ilia Delio, OSF shows how the Franciscan way can offer to all Christians an intimate and wholehearted approach to prayer, one that invites us into the freedom of awakening to who we already are in Christ.

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