Portrays the life of Saint Francis of Assisi, his teachings, and the development of his religious order. Carlo Carretto's book on Saint Francis is poetic,
spiritual, and instructive. He tells the story with
touching simplicity. It is about Francis and his time, but
the author keeps one eye ever on our own time--and in
spite of the lapse of more than seven centuries, succeeds
in drawing for us a lesson both sweet and severe.
St. Francis of Assisi lived from 1181 or 1182
