subtitle:
for Saint Francis of Assisi

In a beautiful gift book format, this title has four-color illustrations throughout that capture the simple, yet joyful spirit of Saint Francis that has inspired generations.

Saint Francis's most famous and evocative sermons to the birds and the wolf of Gubbio are included and remind us of the traits of this beloved Saint that led the current Pope to choose him as a namesake — a deep concern for nature, justice for the poor, and interior peace.

Praise

Reminiscent of a medieval Book of Hours, rich, rainbow-hued artwork and graceful text invite the reader to participate in its happy wisdom rather than merely read it.

Author

Luigi Santucci (1918-1999) was one of the most important Italian writers and poets of the twentieth century.

Illustrator Br. Martin Erspamer, OSB, always wanted to be an artist. He works as a designer and painter of glass, in the pottery studio, does illustrations for books, and works with parishes or communities who want to build or renovate worship spaces. For 17 years he has been a monk at St. Meinrad Archabbey.
