Good purchase

Thus is a good comprehensive guide of the Franciscan saints. I appreciate that the author also included those not yet canonized.

A peek at those saintly souls who followed in St. Francis' footsteps.

I bought the book as a gift for a friend but couldn't help but page through it before I wrapped it. It's a wonderful overview of those whose souls and hearts were aligned with our peaceful St. Francis!
