John Michael Talbot’s Reflections on St Francis offers readers an accessible entrance into the Rule and testament of St Francis of Assisi. Talbot’s reflections shed light on Francis as a saint, a founder and a reformer. Drawing on his own experience as the founder of The Brothers and Sisters of charity at Little Portion hermitage, an integrated monastic community of celibates, singles and families, Talbot provides unique observations on how Francis’ life and the Franciscan tradition can be a source of inspiration for those of all states of life today. These meditations allows readers to contemplate the ways in which prayer, community and simplicity can be integrated into their own lives while also giving readers Talbot’s distinct interpretation of Francis’s work.
