A Fiery Heart - The radical love of St Francis of Assisi
Author: Felice Accrocca
Francis was an exceptional man, as his own contemporaries testified. Too often, thought, this emphasis has obscured his humanity. Francis immersed himself with all his heart in daily life because he was certain that the Son of God had become man to share our full human experience. This was the central fact of Francis’s life: he burned with love of God.
