Come rest in the life and Spirit of Francis of Assisi.
This on-line retreat weaves together anecdotes from his life, places he sought communion with God, poetic verse and prayers that emerged from within him, and challenging teachings from his way of life.
All has relevance for today, and is especially highlighted by Pope Francis in light of the signs of our time to care for our common Earth home and to unite with justice, equality and friendship with all our brothers and sisters.
