Life of St Francis of Assisi (#57154)

"Francis, go and build up My house, which thou seest, is falling into ruin." To fulfill this command of Our Lord, St Francis of Assisi (1181-1226) began by restoring physical churches and continued by building up the spiritual Church in souls. Francis' humility, purity, and true joy inspired many to conversion and a deeper faith.

Never ordained a priest, St. Francis nonetheless was a preacher and a miracle-worker of the first order - curing, prophesying, casting out devils, turning water into wine, and raising people from the dead.

The Life of St Francis of Assisi is a biography written by St Bonaventure that includes stories of his followers. This book conveys a picture of the Saint that gives an indelible impression of a man totally transformed by God.

Though written in the 1200s the writings of St Bonaventure, who was a saint himself and knew St Francis well, are readable with some interesting turns of phrase.
