A Common Vision
By Gina Loehr w/Al Giambrone
Softcover - 144 pp

Who was St. Francis, and what does his patronage mean for the newest successor of St. Peter?

St. Francis was uniquely dedicated to being an authentic image of Christ in the world. Our Holy Father's decision to align himself with St. Francis therefore implies a desire to keep himself and his authority rooted in Christ. Loehr examines five "loves" that characterized St. Francis's relationship with Christ.

- Love of the Church
- Love the the Cross
- Love of peace
- Love of the poor
- Love of humility

Each chapter begins with a scriptural reflection on one of these five loves in the life of Christ, followed by examples from the life of St. Francis, and an examination of how Pope Francis has demonstrated his commitment to that Gospel value. Relevant Church teaching as well as questions for reflection will help readers discern how to incorporate these loves into their own lives. Add to your cart or wish list above.
