Walking in Faith with Francis and Clare
Written and directed by Greg Friedman, O.F.M.
Every year thousands of pilgrims descend on Assisi, Italy, birthplace of Sts. Francis and Clare, eager to draw on the rich spiritual experience that such a pilgrimage affords. Most people, however, will never cross the ocean to visit Assisi, but still want to know more about the founding Franciscan saints and the world in which they lived.
This new film aims to make that pilgrimage experience accessible to more people. The two-hour program allows viewers to hear the stories of actual pilgrims who have come to Assisi and to visit, via video, the many places that a modern pilgrim would go to in Assisi and the surrounding region.
Franciscan Pilgrimage guides, including author and poet Murray Bodo, O.F.M., Clare scholar Margaret Carney, O.S.F., and author Roch Niemier, O.F.M., tell the stories of places and events in the lives of Francis and Clare that mark the pilgrims' road. Music by Franciscan composer Robert M. Hutmacher adds a medieval flavor. Special features include interactive maps, timelines, a detailed explanation of the symbolism in the Cross of San Damiano, and a pilgrims' dramatization of Clare's departure from wealth.
A perfect gift for anyone who has a devotion to Franciscan spirituality, a curiosity about Francis and Clare, or who simply wants to take an "armchair tour" of this very special pilgrimage destination. Free user's guide available on our Web site. 120 minute DVD
