WHEN SAINT FRANCIS SAVED THE CHURCH
How a Converted Medieval Troubadour Created a Spiritual Vision for the Ages
Author: Jon M. Sweeney
Hardcover / 175pp Review by Bert Ghezzi:
"Reflecting with Jon Sweeney on the work and wisdom of St. Francis of Assisi orients us on how to pray for Pope Francis' efforts and to respond to his initiatives." This fresh, new look at the life of St. Francis explores how his focus on friendship, stewardship, relations to others and relation to the natural world were quite novel in his time, and yet it was his vision that renewed the faith of his day and, in the words of the author, "...quite literally saved the Church."
