The Spirit of St Francis
The Spirit of St Francis by Stephen Cherry
In this collection of addresses from the first Latin American Pope, the focus is particularly on the name of St Francis that he deliberately chose in order to express his desire for a new and very different vision of Church - a church for and of the poor. The addresses are gathered into 10 chapters each of which is prefaced with reflections from the life of St Francis with a simple, profound message - that of a radical return to Gospel values and a listening heart. Pope Francis seeks to change the church from within and to promote active engagement with the mess of living - where we will find God. A book to dip into and allow the wisdom to percolate into daily life.
