about

St. Francis of Assisi is one of the most endearing and human characters of the Middle Ages. His influence today is just as strong as 800 years ago when he was founding his Order, talking to Popes and carrying the message of peace to the infidel. St. Francis traveled with the crusaders not to fight the Muslims, or even to preach to them, but to persuade them, and the Christians, to make peace and live together in harmony. This book focuses around his prayer, Lord, make me an instrumentof thy peace, and in a series of charming vignettes, it shows how the prayer develops in the course of his pilgrimage through Italy towards the East and an uncertain fate.This book reads like an adventure mystery story, yet also brings a message of peace, love and hope. We travel with Francis and Brother Leo from Assisi to Syria, meeting fascinating characters and learning life lessons along the way. While a certain element of fiction has been added, the basic story is true. St. Francis' message is timeless, and this book brings him to life as few others have.
