Haven't read yet.

A Eucharistic Light to Follow

This book brings to light, in action a Franciscan Calling. Will include it in ongoing discussion and formation of Fraternity and the living of the Rule.

Light of Assisi: The Story of Saint Clare

This is the first book that I have read about St. Clare. I found it to be a wonderful and very readable overview of her life, her mission, her connection with St. Francis and the friers, and her relationships with the various men in the church hierarchy. With this foundation and context, I now feel ready to read her writings (St. Francis and Clare by Regis Armstrong OFM CAP and Ignatius Brady OFM) and the chapter on St. Clare in Arnaldo Fortini's Francis of Assisi.

Have not read it yet but looking forward to it
