LENT & EASTER WISDOM FROM ST FRANCIS & ST CLARE

LENT & EASTER WISDOM FROM ST FRANCIS & ST CLARE

Although they lived nearly 800 years ago, Saint Francis and Saint Clare of Assisi serve as excellent guides for today's Lenten journey. Saint Francis and Saint Clare of Assisi abandoned their privileged lifestyles and embraced lives of poverty, humility, and penance to follow the call to Christian discipleship. They both experienced powerful conversions. In the course of their conversions, they ignited a movement that reformed the medieval Church and continues to influence and inspire millions of Christians to this day.

In this book of prayers, letters, poetry, rules of life, and testaments, Francis and Clare express their vision of the Gospel life. Included are numerous themes for the Lenten and Easter seasons: penance, conversion, self-sacrifice, service, embracing the cross, the humility and charity of Christ, joy, new life, and mission. 

Each selected writing is followed by a brief scripture passage, a fitting prayer, and a suggested action-making this book an ideal companion for daily use. The words and example of these two great saints will inspire readers faithfully to follow Christ to the cross so they might experience the joy and new life of Easter, as  Claire and Francis did.
