Publisher's Summary

Follow the teachings of St. Francis of Assisi in this special retreat experience with gifted Franciscan Br. Bill Short, OFM, as your guide.

In this series of 12 retreat sessions, you will have the opportunity to reflect on your own spiritual journey with insights from the writings of Francis and Clare of Assisi.

Franciscan spirituality has brought a fresh look at God, at Christ, to Christians for centuries. The great saints of Assisi, Francis and Clare, have inspired many to follow their simple and heartfelt approach.

Francis shows us how to approach God as love, a reality that is based in the heart's affections more than the mind's ideas. The dynamic relationship of the Persons of the Holy Trinity provides the model for our lives. Can we develop our "emotional intelligence" in growing in union with God? Our humanity itself is modeled on Christ, and thus gives us a very good image of who God is. The limitations of our life, of time and space, even suffering and death, can connect us with God because of the Beloved Son Jesus.

The Lord's presence among us continues "until the end of the ages," in the Eucharistic poverty of Christ. And our community of worship and praise is much broader than the human world, as every creature joins in worship of the Creator, becoming brother and sister to us, as Francis sang in his "Canticle of Creatures." As we live the word of Jesus in deed and example, we "give birth" to the Lord in "holy activity", sharing in the mystery of His Mother Mary, "the virgin made Church."

After listening to these 12 retreat topics, you will have the inspiration of Francis and Clare of Assisi to accompany you in your journey, following the footprints of Christ in this world.
