By Thadee Matura (Hyde Park, New York: New City Press, 2009).
Thaddee Matura, a specialist in Franciscan spirituality, has written over a dozen books on St. Francis of Assisi and his message. In 15 Days of Prayer with Saint Francis, the author selects key texts and provides a commentary that introduces the Poverello’s gospel based message. This volume provides a spiritual itinerary covering the grandeur and misery of the human condition; the love of neighbor, especially the poor and the marginalized; poverty, the path to perfect joy; wonder over all of creation; and above all, discovering and praising the mystery of the Trinity, the center of every Christian life. Those who may have only an anecdotal acquaintance with the facts of Francis’s life will be astonished at the density of his spiritual message.
