Item Description...
Overview
A new title in the popular Lent and Easter Wisdom series, this book draws inspiration from Saints Francis and Clare of Assisi In this book of prayers, letters, poetry, rules of life, and testaments, Francis and Clare express their vision of the Gospel life. Included are numerous themes extremely appropriate for the Lenten and Easter seasons: penance, conversion, self-sacrifice, service, embracing the cross, the humility and charity of Christ, joy, new life, and mission.

Publishers Description
Although they lived nearly 800 years ago, Saint Francis and Saint Clare of Assisi serve as excellent guides for the modern Lenten journey. Saint Francis and Saint Clare of Assisi abandoned their comfortable lifestyles and embraced lives of poverty, humility, and penance to better follow the call to Christian discipleship. Both saints underwent powerful conversion experiences in their lives. In the course of their conversions, they ignited a movement that reformed the medieval Church and that continues to influence and inspire millions of Christians to this day.
In this book of prayers, letters, poetry, rules of life, and testaments, Francis and Clare express their vision of the Gospel life. Included are numerous themes extremely appropriate for the Lenten and Easter seasons: penance, conversion, self-sacrifice, service, embracing the cross, the humility and charity of Christ, joy, new life, and mission. Through these daily meditations, Scriptural readings, and spiritual exercises, we follow two of the most influential figures in Church history.
Each selected writing is followed by a brief scripture passage, a fitting prayer, and a suggested action-making this book an ideal companion for daily use. The words and example of these two great saints will inspire readers faithfully to follow Christ to the cross so that, together with them, they might experience the joy and new life of Easter.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Wonderful Lenten Study  Mar 9, 2010
This is a great book for Lenten study - the selections are easy to keep up on each day of Lent. Every day has a reading from St. Clare or St. Francis on a particular topic relating to Lent, a reading from the Bible on that subject and then my favorite part, a practical way to take what you just read out into daily life. The Lenten action item suggests a particular thought to carry with you, something to try to do that day or something to look at in a certain way. I found myself thinking off and on about the action item throughout the day and looking for ways to apply it. So many times, what is read is forgotten as soon as the book is closed, but this book takes your reading into daily life. I give this book a high recommendation.
 
Lent and Easter Wisdom From St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi  Dec 31, 2009
We purchased four copies of this book as gifts for friends. They are all looking forward to using the book during the upcoming Lenten season. We had previously purchased a copy and used it during this past Lent. We found it extremely useful every day during lent. Using it was also a form of penance as it involved "doing something" rather than "giving up something."
 
You have to get this book!  Apr 16, 2009
I purchased this book half-way through Lent.... sure wish I had found it sooner. This is a WONDERFUL book. Great prayers and passages taken directly from St. Francis and St. Clare's writings. There are passages for each of the 40+ days of Lent, plus the Easter Week following.

I really enjoyed reading this, and will bring it out again for Lent next year. Heck, I may read it later this fall just because it is so spiritual and inspirational.

Highly recommended for every Catholic!
 
Refreshing Lenten Devotional  Mar 14, 2009
This is a refreshing Lenten devotional in that it is not the run of the mill type I have seen available for so many years. I think it is the direct tie to St. Francis' and St. Clare's teachings. Franciscan spirituality is my favorite and I am very comfortable with St. Francis' look toward all of God's creatures.
