Life of St Francis
of Assisi. "Francis, go and build up My house, which thou seest, is falling
into ruin." To fulfill this command of Our Lord, St Francis of Assisi
(1181-1226) began by restoring physical churches and continued by building
up the spiritual Church in souls. Francis' humility, purity, and true joy
inspired many to conversion and a deeper faith.
a priest, St. Francis nonetheless was a preacher and a miracle-worker of the
first order - curing, prophesying, casting out devils, turning water into
wine, and raising people frmo the dead.

About The Author
St. Bonaventure was born, with the given name of John, to Giovanni di Fidanza
and Maria Ritella in 1221 at Bagnoregio, Italy. His life was so pure that
it was said that he seemed not to have inherited Original Sin. According to
legend, he received the name of Bonaventure ( bona ventura good fortune) at
a very young age from St. Francis of Assisi and was cured of an illness through
the saint's intercession. In 1243 he became a Franciscan (considered the Order's
second founder) and later earned the position of Master of Theology with St.
Thomas Aquinas at Paris in 1257. He was made a Cardinal by Pope Gregory X
and later presided at the Council of Lyon in 1274, where he died suddenly.
He was canonized by Pope Sixtus IV in 1484 and is known as the Seraphic Doctor
of the Church.
St. Bonaventure also wrote the Commentary on the Gospel of St. Luke, Breviloquium,
De Septem Itineribus Aeternitatis, Itinerarium Mentis ad Deum, De Reductione
Artium ad Theologiam, and Soliloquium. His feast day is celebrated on the
15th of July.
