Here, told in a vivid and orginal way, is the full story of the life of St. Francis of Assisi. This story has been told many times before, but Fr. Larranaga tells it with a new spirit, seamlessly combining a modern spirit with the freshness and sense of wonder of the Floretti.

Publishers Description
Here, told in a vivid and original way, is the full story of the life of St. Francis of Assisi. This story has been told many times before, but Fr. Larranaga tells it with a new spirit, seamlessly combining a modern spirit with the freshness and sense of wonder of the Fioretti. When Francis Bernardone was held as a prisoner of war at the age of 20, he never dreamed that he would become a knight in the service of Lady Poverty. By the time he died 25 years later, he had become the Poor Man of God, the living image of the Crucified Savior.

More About Ignacio Larranaga

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Ignacio Larranaga, O.F.M. Cap., was born in 1928 in the Basque region of Spain. He entered the minor seminary of the Capuchin Order at age twelve and finished both his secondary studies and later his ecclesiastical studies with them. Upon ordination, his special gifts for preaching and for music were recognized. He had always felt an attraction for Chile and, at age thirty, he was assigned there. Thus began a full and effective mission with the founding of the Center of Franciscan and Pastoral Studies for Latin America, an educational and publishing community.
In 1974 Fr. Larranaga felt specially called to awaken among the clergy the desire to encounter God. He began a series of retreats whose object was "to find the living and true face of God" and to introduce the retreatants to a deep experience of God. The "Encounters with God" movements was begun and has since spread from Chile throughout South America, to Central America, to Spain and now to the United States. It is estimated that a hundred and thirty thousand people have attended these week-long retreats.
"Sensing Your Hidden Presence" (originally published as "Muestrame Tu Rostro") is Fr. Larranaga's seminal work and has sold two hundred thousand copies in its various editions. His other titles (presently available only in Spanish) are "The Silence of Mary" ("El Silencio de Maria"), "The Brother of Assisi" ("El hermano de Asis"), "Climb with Me" ("Sube Conmigo"), "From Suffering to Peace" ("Del sufrimiento a La Paz"), "Psalms for Living" ("Salmos para la vida"), and "Encounter, A Prayer Book" ("Encuentro, Manual de Oracion")--with combined sales of more than a million copies. In addition, "An Adventure of the Spirit" ("Una adventura del espiritu"), a book about Fr. Larranaga's life and work, has recently appeared in Chile.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Insightful and inspirational  Nov 19, 2007
This is awesome because it does not only tell the story of Saint Francis' life, but it also looks at what may be happening internally to the young Saint. The insights into what would compel a man to act as Francis is inspiring. Being able to trace the transformation of his heart helps me to believe that I too can become a saint since I can find similar movements in soul through my growth as a Christian.
Fantastic Revival of Faith  Jul 12, 2007
There is no doubt about it, this book is clearly outstanding in its language and description of Brother Francis of Assisi. Ignacio Larranaga has captured the true essence of St. Francis: his spirit, his love of "Lady Poverty" and his determination to hold fast to a state of grace which was certainly unpreciedented for his time. What a fantastic description and deptiction of a truly holy man. Highly recommended.
