This is one of my favorite books on Francis, presented in the first person by a Little Brother of the Gospel, who has lived as Francis did. I read it on a pilgrimage to Assisi and it sustained and challenged me. There is also a "Little Divine Office" at the end of he book that combines scripture and Francis which provides a day of prayer with Francis.

Those who know little of Francis might want to read a biography before reading this, but should not neglect reading this, slowly and prayerfully.

Sempre gli stessi sono i problemi esistenziali che ci assillano, ed anzi, adesso l'esistenza rischia pure di cessare d'esistere. "Ma conosco abbastanza l'uomo e so che se è preso dalla paura tenterà di schiacciare il bottone della distruzione per paura che sia l'altro a schiacciarlo per ...more

This is a book I read in college, and it changed the way I looked at the world. Somewhere in moves, and shifting about, the book was lost, stolen, given away, and I got a craving for it. It is as good now as it was 20 years ago. And, it still changes my views.
