Thoughtful Reflections on Saint Francis of Assisi

Mt. Subasio

Thank you to Sheila Vamplin for sharing stories of how influential the life of Saint Francis of Assisi has been in the unfolding of her own spiritual life.  You can read her piece HERE.  I am also grateful for her kind remarks about my novel, Sweet River Fool.  The picture above is from Sheila’s own blog. (Click on the image to go there.)  Here is how she describes the scene: “This is one of my favorite photos from Assisi, the woods up on Mt. Subasio, where Francis and his friends used to go to pray. The trees are so gracefully wild, or wildly graceful, and I can just imagine  how he loved to be up there away from the city.”
