Eager to Love: The Alternative Way of Francis of Assisi By Richard Rohr

A good read.


As usual, Rohr takes the reader to new depths, and then some.

Francis of Assisi is a beloved creature of Italy beyond Padre Pio, among others.

Francis was a paradox.

Prophets are like that.

They are.

Down to earth while reaching toward a better understanding of the world beyond.

The Franciscan friar -- Rohr -- is an ecumenical teacher like Francis who is loved across faith traditions.

Francis was "a master of 'making room for it' and letting go of that which was tired or empty," claims Rohr in this head-turner of a tome.

This alternative way of Francis paves a way and a path to the divine that will deepen and enrich our spiritual lives for sure.

Francis lived on the edge of the inside of both church and society.

He did.

I like that.
