Spirit of Saint Francis

The Spirit of Saint Francis is a visual meditation on the invisible spiritual world of the saint and how his sacred discoveries can help us as we move toward God in our own way, in our own day.

This simple and unique film explores the contemplative dimension of the Franciscan charism and the importance of stillness and silence in our spiritual lives. While St. Francis is famous for his great works of charity in caring for the poor, fully half of his adult life was spent in solitude, clothed in silence and fervently engaged in prayer. Action, for the saint, flowed out of prayer.
