Even where there are deepening divisions, love is possible. Even when there is suffering, joy is possible. Even in the midst of brokenness, rebuilding is possible. A simple, singing monk from the 13th century just might be able to teach us what is still possible—for us, today.
Wherever you live, use our audio guides to follow the path of Francis through the narrow stone streets of Assisi and along the dirt paths of the Umbrian countryside as we share in his journey of transformation from disillusioned youth to joy-filled fool for Christ. Along with Clare and their many followers, Francis' full-hearted embodiment of the way of Jesus sparked a deeply felt renewal within himself and within the Church. Let the stories of Francis and Clare, along with scripture, prayer practices, and contemporary stories, inspire you this summer in an experience of walking in the Divine Way (Via Divina).
Each audio-guided excursion will help you immerse yourself in the love of Jesus through the stories of Francis and Clare, from scripture, and fellow sojourners.
