About the Book

The basis of this book is The Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi. A poem was written about each line of The Prayer by the author of the book. Selected individuals also wrote reflections about each line of The Prayer. A preface was composed by an individual who also wrote one of the reflections regarding one of the lines within The Prayer. An introduction is presented by the composer of the poems. This entire project is founded on Christ’s message that we love one another as Christ loved all of us.
