THE LIFE OF ST FRANCIS OF ASSISI
Candide Chalippe O.F.M.
Softcover - 587pp
"The Life of St. Francis", by the French Franciscan Candide Chalippe (circa 1727) is now back in print, unabridged, with footnotes and some pictures!
This is one of the best books available in English, not just with respect to St. Francis, but spiritually, theologically and historically it is an awesome work. In spite of all the miracles it relates, it also humanizes St. Francis in many ways, by depicting the outstanding virtues he practiced, humility, sacrifice, mortification and charity. There is a reason why St. Francis is one of the greatest Saints in the history of the Church. You wont regret this! Place into the cart or wish list above.
