Let us consider how the life of the glorious St Francis was conformed in every act with that of our Blessed Lord. For as Christ, before he began to preach, made choice of twelve Apostles, teaching them to despise all the things of this world, to follow him in poverty and in the practice of all other virtues, so St Francis, on the first founding of his Order, chose twelve companions, all lovers of poverty. St Francis tried to emulate the life of Christ in every aspect of his life and many believed that he succeeded. The story of St. Francis has inspired people for generations. Included are 53 stories of miracles and faith.

With an introduction by Arthur Livingston. 262 pages. hardcover. keywords: Religion Biography. inventory # 37707.

The work is not planned as a complete, chronological life of the Saint, but gives us a series of intimate glimpses into the life of Saint Francis and his early companions, and in so doing recaptures something of the ardour and simplicity of the friars in the spring-time of the Franciscan movement, which was soon to take the world by storm.
