The Complete Francis of Assisi (paperback)

THE COMPLETE FRANCIS OF ASSISI
Edited, Translated & Introduced
by Jon M. Sweeney


There are many editions of the writings of Francis, and biographies about him, but here in one volume are both, plus the complete text of the late medieval work The Little Flowers, which did more to establish the legend of Francis than any other work.

Includes the complete Road to Assisi, Paul Sabatier's groundbreaking biography of Francis; the complete Francis in His Own Words: The Essential Writings; and The Little Flowers, thus offering the best introduction to St. Francis yet available. Paperback, 399 pages, 6" x 9"

"It is not simply that Francis's ideals are worth recounting, but that his life was so extraordinary. He was fully human—like each of us in our awkwardness, insecurities, and fear—but he was also perhaps the purest example we have seen of a person striving to do what Jesus taught his disciples."

Daily Meditations with
the Messengers of God


In A Year with the Angels, Patristics expert Mike Aquilina offers contemplations and prayers about the most mysterious of all created beings, the Angels, drawn from the deep well of the Church Fathers' wisdom about these powerful protectors, intercessors and messengers.
