Quite Deep

I’m still chewing on it. It has helped me understand St. Francis in a deeper way than I did before. I never got this depth in my studies for my profession as a SFO. I’m glad that I purchased the book.

"Core Insight into the Spirituality of St Bonaventure"

Sr Ilia Delio, OSF’s book on The Mysticism of St Bonaventure is a delight.
Is it a challenging read - indeed. Is it a tough read - indeed. But, what a delight
and spiritual journey into both Francis of Assisi’s and Bonaventure’s profound
spirituality. Graduating from St Bonaventure University & Christ the King Seminary at the University, the book offers wonderful insights & material for
sermons. As a student of Prof Ewert Cousins, she focuses on this insight of St Bonaventure: “there is no other path but through the burning love of the Crucified”. Sister Ilia’s writing is clear, focused, and so refreshing!!

Ilia Delio, OSF, a Franciscan Sister of Washington, DC, holds the Josephine C. Connelly Endowed Chair in Theology at Villanova University. A native of Newark, NJ, she earned doctorates in pharmacology from the New Jersey Medical School/School of Biomedical Sciences and in historical theology from Fordham University, NY, and is the recipient of a notable Templeton Course in Science and Religion award. Delio is the author of seventeen books including Franciscan Prayer, The Humility of God, and Compassion. She lectures internationally on topics including evolution, artificial intelligence, consciousness, and religion.
