He is the guy on the birdbath in your neighbor's garden. He fascinated biographers in his own century and continues to inspire films, novels, poems, and music in our century. He is the little poor man whose influence spans eight hundred years; a
"king of revels" who became servant of all; a man of war who became a man of God.
Though he lived and worked in the Catholic tradition, his fame has spread to all Christians and beyond. His name is synonymous everywhere with joy, with simplicity, with peace.
He is Francis of Assisi, and this is his story.
Kathleen M. Carroll is managing editor of books for Franciscan Media. She is the author of A Catholic Christmas, A Franciscan Christmas, and Keeping the Faith in Ohio: Words of Hope and Comfort from Our Spiritual Leaders (Emmis).
