Close associates and later beloved saints, Francis and Clare of Assisi lived their lives immersed in prayer. Containing those prayers that were committed to paper, this collection includes Francis's Divine Office—a full week of songs and Bible meditations—and his expanded version of the Lord's Prayer. Clare is represented by a Liturgy of her own, a selection of occasional prayers, and Laurence Housman's 1935 one-act play about her. Offering introductions to these pivotal figures in Christian history, Jon Sweeney also explores tales of Brother Juniper and the early Franciscan order, as well as the worldwide traditions of "Holy Fools."
