Item Description...
Overview
Saints Francis and Clare of Assisi were people of prayer who found spiritual inspiration in a variety of places and forms. To help modern-day followers of these two beloved saints who seek similar inspiration, Secular Franciscan Paula Pearce has collected prayers and reflections from Franciscans in several countries and compiled their diverse contributions in Prayers From Franciscan Hearts: Contemporary Reflections From Women and Men. Pearce organized the contributions around pilgrimage stations dear to Franciscans and that mark significant stages on the saints' journeys back to God, such as San Rufino, the Porziuncola and La Verna. Each of fourteen pilgrimage stations opens with an introduction, giving information about the place and its context within the saints' distinctive journeys. Prayerful and reflective contributions from Franciscans around the globe, relevant to the theme of the station, follow. Each station closes with simple suggestions for further reflection and pertinent Scripture references. As Franciscans celebrate the 800th anniversary of the founding of the Franciscan order, Prayers From Franciscan Hearts will be a valuable and welcome addition to anyone's trove of prayer resources.

Publishers Description
"Some of the writings here aspire to art, some are simply the spontaneous outpourings of the heart confronted with the lives and places of Francis and Clare of Assisi. Some are prayers, others meditations, but all attest to the power of the Franciscan charism to change lives, to inspire and to elicit words of gratitude and joy that the pilgrim soul feels impelled to preserve in the written word."--From the Foreword by Murray Bodo, O.F.M.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
For Prayer and Contemplation  Feb 11, 2008
These original, contemporary narratives and poems are organized into 14 stations, which the author describes as "movements toward conversion as it pertains to the lives of Francis and Clare." The first station takes us to the Cathedral of San Rufino where Clare and Francis were baptized. Pearce provides a brief summary of each child's background and describes Francis' experiences as a knight and the imprisonment that led him "to ponder the essential teachings of Christ and the ethos of materialism and worldly success." The body of the chapter consists of prose and poetry contributed by Franciscans from around the world. In this chapter the personal meditations center on the significance of Assisi to each writer. Pearce closes the chapter with suggestions for reflection and further reading. Here the reflection involves renewing baptismal promises and meditating on a significant memory, person, or place.

Each of the remaining 13 stations follows the same format, resulting in a satisfying mix of biographical information and inspiring prayers, stories, and poems. Individuals and faith sharing groups would find Pearce's work a useful resource for prayer and contemplation.
