Sorry. I don’t have anything to say.

Advent with St. Francis: Daily Reflections

Not quite what I expected

I thought there would be prayers and reflections about Advent or Christ from St Francis himself. Instead, the author provided examples and stories about St Francis and offered her own reflections and prayers from the Psalms. Still worthwhile, just not what I expected. Perhaps I didn't read the description of the book thoroughly before ordering it.

Beautiful Little Books!

As a Secular Franciscan, I always am looking for prayer reflections that will help me grow in holiness, especially reflecting the teachings of St. Francis of Assisi and his followers. Because the Incarnation was so important to St. Francis, the Advent Season takes on even more expectancy. This book of daily reflections includes where to find the daily readings, as well as as reflections and prayers “from a Franciscan perspective.” I purchased one for myself and five more to give to my fraternity’s council before next Advent. I pray they will enjoy the book as much as I have.
