John Anglin, OFM, a Catholic Priest for forty-four years and a Franciscan friar for half a century, reveals how Francis chose a life of living the gospel of Jesus Christ in a way that everyone, whatever their background, could appreciate. Fr. Anglin explains the spiritual vision of Francis, describes those who came after him, and details how Francis' vision shapes and inspires the lives of those who would follow Jesus, whether they are members of the Franciscan order or laypeople.
