Item description for Conversations with St. Francis by James C. Howell...
Overview In this spiritually apt look at the life, message, and meaning of St. Francis, Howell invites all of us to pose our most difficult spiritual questions to the saint?and to listen for the questions he asks of us in response.
If you were able to talk to St. Francis of Assisi, what would you ask him? Perhaps, says James Howell, the first question I d want to ask Francis would be something like this: How did you do it? Were you real? How much of your story really happened? And I m asking because I am wondering how I might do it: could I somehow grab a share of the life you had? The marvel in Francis s story is that all he did seems entirely doable but then, at the same time, ridiculously impossible. As I survey the bare facts of his life, it all seems so manageably simple, and yet unquestionably what happened was nothing short of miraculous.
