$ 16.99
Franciscan Murray Bodo illuminates seven key teachings from St. Francis and shows how these teachings are the foundation for Franciscan spirituality today. Beginning with the wonder of the incarnation, he moves through the paradox of evangelical poverty, living the Gospel, repairing God's house, making peace, the recognition that we are one with all of creation, and the joy and humble service of God. All of these teachings have their roots and destination in the love of God that surrounds all of creation and each individual person. Stock #: B53237

Surrounded by Love: Seven Teachings from St. Francis

Great book!

As simple as people may think St Francis was, he was not. In trying to live simply, we see how difficult, in the modern world, that is to do. And, probably in St Francis time, it wasn't that easy either. We're called to live that life of simplicity and poverty well but the world tells us to be comfortable. Great book. I plan to keep it handy as I continue my journey toward profession to the Secular Franciscans.
