In "St. Francis and the Cross, each of the authors provides two reflections on key texts and events from the life of the saint. Cantalamessa mediates on Francis' "Canticle of Creation" and his "Testament," calling us to allow the beauty of creation to draw us to Christ and open us to love. Martini considers how the folly of the cross brings us to wisdom and to perfect joy. This is an ideal book to use during prayer times or on retreat.
