In a beautiful gift book format, this title has four-color illustrations throughout that capture the simple, yet joyful spirit of Saint Francis that has inspired generations.
Saint Francis's most famous and evocative sermons to the birds and the wolf of Gubbio are included and remind us of the traits of this beloved Saint that led the current Pope to choose him as a namesake — a deep concern for nature, justice for the poor, and interior peace.
"Reminiscent of a medieval Book of Hours, rich, rainbow-hued artwork and graceful text invite the reader to participate in its happy wisdom rather than merely read it."
—Carmen Acevedo Butcher, PhD, Author of Man of Blessing: A Life of St. Benedict
“Nature is a book that reveals, to all who can see, God’s secrets; beauty, death, and life. These reflections and illustrations remind me of angels – or the birds that St. Francis adored – singing holy songs. I love this book.”
— Jon M. Sweeney, author of The St. Francis Holy Fool Prayer Book and When Saint Francis Saved the Church
