My friends,

For those who havent seen it (and for those who have) this is a classic beautifully crafted movie about the great St Francis of Assisi. A film by Franco Zeffirelli made in 1972, it has lost none of its power today.

Be inspired by the story of this great peacemaker. And make a new commitment to being an instrument of peace yourself.

In love and peace always,

Maithri.

Indeed St. Francis' story is fascinating, he truly was a disciple of Jesus, he refused the comfort of his rich family and became poor, but enlightened. Both , my husband and my son have this name Francesco as their first name, in honor of San Francesco. My son was baptised by a Brother of the Order of St. Francis, who had been a Missionary in the East for many years.
Yes, dear Maithri, you are right, Zeffirelli's movie is highly inspiring and though I have seen it more than once, I love to see it again. It reminds us of how Jesus wanted us to live and to act. Even if we are not able to imitate St. Francis' life, we can learn many a lesson from him and be more aware of what it means to be there for others.
Love,
