Living & Serving in the Way of St. Francis


  • I worked  with 40 different authors to put together the book Living & Serving in the Way of St. Francis.
  • Published by Tau Publishing + Foreword by Cardinal Sean O’Malley, OFM
  • 40 reflections by men and women who worked in Franciscan Service Network programs.
  • I found 40 themes within St. Francis’ Testament and assigned them to writers who connected their own experiences of serving the poor with the thoughts St. Francis expressed in his Testament.
  • This book will give you new insights into St. Francis by way of his own writing
