Francis of Assisi fell so in love with God and God’s Word that he wanted nothing more than to live the Gospel. His understanding of Scripture shaped the way he strove to imitate Jesus in every aspect of his life. Franciscan priest, Scripture scholar, and teacher Fr. Hilarion Kistner, explores how Francis heard, lived, and proclaimed the Gospel. He considers Francis’ profound love for the Gospel, the movement of the Holy Spirit through the written word, the heart of the Gospels, and how Francis lived in the Gospel light.
In a series of always moving, sometimes surprising, and occasionally hilarious stories, Fr. Benedict Groeschel introduces you to the men and women who have influenced him over the course of his life. Some are unknown, such as Mr. Graff, a Jewish man who tailored the suit the young Groeschel would wear to the seminary. And some are famous, such as Mother Teresa, Cardinal John O'Connor, and Fr. Solanus Casey.
