Description

Celebrated Italian poet Luigi Santucci and American artist Br. Martin Erspamer lend heart and imagination to the “Canticle of St. Francis,” one of the most beloved texts in all the writings of St. Francis. Honoring the spirituality of this holy man who preached and listened to man and beast alike, Santucci takes the sermons that Francis bestowed on the birds, the wolf of Gubbio, and so many other creatures, and allows his wisdom to come back to us through the voices of those creatures, providing us with a new classic of Franciscan spirituality.

In a beautiful gift book format, this title has four-color illustrations throughout that capture the simple, yet joyful spirit of Saint Francis that has inspired generations. The book reminds us of the traits of this beloved Saint that led the current Pope to choose him as a namesake — a deep concern for nature, justice for the poor, and interior peace.

Author Luigi Santucci (1918-1999) was one of the most important Italian writers and poets of the twentieth century.

Illustrator Br. Martin Erspamer, OSB, is a monk of Saint Meinrad Archabbey.  He is a well-known liturgical artist and liturgical consultant.  Erspamer works in a wide range of media, including pottery, stained glass, and wood, and is nationally known for his illustration of sacred themes.
