Introduction


This is not a book to be read, as books are bought to be read...

It is not a book of prayer, as books are read to be prayed...

It does not replace the Rule, or our Professions to live the gospel life...

It is not an end in itself.





It is intended to be a help; a centering; a means...

to reflect on the Franciscan life of us in the modern age through the ageless eyes of Jesus...

to see ourselves like St. Francis saw himself; reflected in the Son of God, and Mary, the Morning Star...

to consider what St. Francis intended when he pointed people to holy lifestyles; when he dared to write Rules of life for others.



                      "I am He who is, you are she who is not..."

The Dialogue                                 

(God The Father to St. Catherine of Siena)
