The Loneliness and Longing of Saint Francis: A Hollywood Filmmaker, a Medieval Saint, and a Life-Changing Spirituality for Today
Gerard Thomas Straub
Number of pages: 304
Straub s dramatic story is a modern-day pilgrimage into the prayerful heart of St. Francis of Assisi. The initial jolt of self-discovery Francis was chasing Lady Poverty, while I was chasing Brother BMW gave way to the gradual realization that conversion is a slow, grace-filled process, filled with ups and downs of everyday life. Winding his own spiritual and physical journey along Francis path, Straub discovers first-hand what it might have meant for Francis to live among the homeless, to encounter lepers, and to spend hours in contemplative prayer. His story encourages each of us to look inward and to personally discover how the spirituality that inspired Pope Francis can shape our own spiritual journey. An inspiring, life-changing read.Gerard Thomas Straub
