THE CANTICLE OF THE CREATURES

Product Description
The Canticle Of The Creatures
for Saint Francis of Assisi

"The Canticle Of The Creatures is a delight. Reminiscent of a medieval Book of Hours, rich, rainbow-hued artwork and graceful text invite the reader to participate in its happy wisdom rather than merely read it. And there's a twist-- a talking cicada, wolf, cat, fish, rabbit, bees, and many birds, among others, tell the stories of St. Francis. The mystery in this volume is the 'chirping, barking, mooing, tweeting, and meowing' of creation. This gorgeous book tempts the reader to linger in its pages, and to see the world anew, with vibrant joy."
--Carmen Butcher, author of Man of Blessing: The Life of St. Benedict and A Little Daily Wisdom: Christian Women Mystics

"Nature is a book that reveals, to all who can see, God's secrets: beauty, death, and life. These reflections and illustrations remind me of angels-- or the birds that St. Francis adored-- singing holy songs. I love this book."
--Jon M. Sweeney, author of The St. Francis Holy Fool Prayer Book and When Saint Francis Saved the Church
