Saint Francis of Assisi is a spiritual and cultural icon, but he is also a real figure we can call upon to help guide us in our daily lives. Love, kindness, and respect for each other and the natural world — these are the key components of Francis’ message, and at the essence of his character.
Open Your Spiritual Heart with Saint Francis is a 21 lesson course developed to help us do just that: Open our hearts to receive God’s love, and share it with the world around us. The lessons and guided meditations draw upon Francis’s words, but also upon him directly, and help us to experience his essence, from his heart to our own.
To work with this material is to have Francis nearby as a loving brother, teacher, and guide for a time, as we progress along our spiritual path. Walking with such a positive and powerful influence cannot but help to leave a deep and lasting impression.
Lessons include written material, instruction, and background on Francis, as well as a series of powerful guided meditations and exercises we can use to make a deeper connection with the Divine, strengthen our devotion, and put our love into practice. So that we can each become a more effective instrument of peace, inner healing is a key focus.
Canticle of the Sun, and Instrument of Thy Peace, Francis’ best known works, are the basis for the lessons. In these deeply inspired prayers we’re provided a window through which we can know Francis, and receive his mentorship and support.
