Clare of Assisi: A Heart Full of Love explores Clare's deep desire to live the gospel life, more precisely, her desire for all of us to reflect on Christ and his crucifixion in order to see our own strengths and weaknesses, and most importantly, our capacity to love. Ilia Delio illustrates how Clare, through her life, her writings, letters, prayer and example, is truly a mystic who helped generations of Catholics clearly see how Christ took on human flesh, not just to suffer and die for us, but to help us all in turn reflect back the face of Christ to the world.Stock #: B16789

Thomas Sikes
Sharing the Life of St Francis within our Church

We have purchased quite a few books about St. Francis and his legacy in the world today. We attend St Francis Seraph in Cincinnati and are growing a small library for our parishioners. We are limited in funds and look for addl. clearances to help it grow. We cannot give feedback at this time.

Clare of Assisi: A Heart Full of Love

This book is well written. Claire talks about looking in the mirror and to look at yourself, but not your outside appearance but your heart and soul. It was a wake-up call.

Diane Kuzma

I gave this book as a gift to a friend who has a granddaughter named Clara.

Pierre Baker
Clare of Assisi - A Heart Full of Love

A great read based on the San Damiano cross, which Clare meditated on every day of her life. Demonstrates how friendship and intimacy can grow ever more deeply through a life of silence and contemplation.

The bloodline of a mystic

This book brought me to appreciate mystics and mystical experience in new ways. I showed me the mystical leanings in my personality.
