  • Murray Bodo

    Those are the two magnetic poles of my life books and the Franciscan Priesthood The glue that holds them together is Saint Francis of Assisi himself From the time I was thirteen years old and read Sophie Jewett s God s Troubadour, The Story of St Francis of Assisi, St Francis has been a major inspiration of my life I became a Franciscan in 1955 I ve written about him, prayed for his intercession, studied him, taught his life and spirituality and for the last 34 years led pilgrimages to Assisi Murray Bodo

  • This is a book of daily readings either from Francis of Assisi's writings or others who spoke of him. They are all good quotes but they don't seem to really offer true direction in the sense daily readings should do. But for some this may be a perfect form or offering meditative thoughts for the day as only Francis seems to be able to offer.


  • Very good Very good I like the book since I am a Franciscan too and it is helpful to remember St FRANCIS words to all of us



  • A nice overview of the life and teachings of Francis of Assisi. This daily devotional keeps the entries brief and interesting.


  • I enjoyed spending a few minutes each day through 2011 reading words by and about Francis of Assisi.To those who haven't read much, as well as to those who have, I highly recommend this book.
