Registration required. Everyone loves St. Francis! He’s renowned for his gentle spirit, love of nature, and heart for the poor. From the pope to the most ordinary person, Francis – and Franciscan spirituality – has inspired us for centuries. But what is “Franciscan spirituality” and how can we pray like St. Francis and follow in his footsteps? This program begins Friday night by exploring the life of “Il Poverello” and the main themes of his spirituality. On Saturday we will take a closer look at Franciscan spirituality, both as found in Francis’s own writings as well as in the charism of the Franciscan order.
