A Mended and Broken Heart: The Life and Love of Francis of Assisi

A few reflections:

(1) That Francis used to be a fine looking guy, as steered through the author,was hardly ever the case. we've modern pictures of Francis exhibiting in a different way besides descriptions of his contemporaries equivalent to Thomas of Celano;

(2) That Francis was once a womanizer, back urged by means of the writer, is uncertain. there isn't any facts in any respect of this. In thirteenth Century Assisi, this kind of small city, it should were prohibitied until the writer is suggesting Francis visited homes of prostitution. there isn't any list of this in any respect. the writer is placing her twenty first Century inklings into the thirteenth Century;

(3) there is not any indication in any respect that Francis had any romantic feelings
toward Claire of Assisi. historical past is totally silent in this factor. the writer is correct pertaining to Francis' and his love of Arthurian legends.
As a question of background, the assumption of chivalric love prohibited sexual touch. girl Poverty was once simply that - a component of his mystical existence. And certainly the age distinction is suspect - Francis was once virtually 30 while he switched over to the magical existence - Claire turning 14 - 15;

(4) sure, Francis did visit warfare. the writer says he used to be a "warrior. "
Such a observe indicates a way of life that can infrequently painting the Francis of Assisi of historic list. definite, he went to conflict yet we haven't any proposal of what he did. He may have killed or he might have been nursing the wounded in his first conflict. we do not understand. We do recognize he used to be attempting to satisfy his father's aspirations whilst he armored as much as pass at the Cursades. This enterprise, we all know, used to be interrupted through a paranormal occasion for Francis. He grew to become again and have become a knight of his Lord - the paranormal Christ who ultimately spoke to him at Daniano. used to be he then a "failed knight? " as urged through the writer. Francis notion another way. the matter right here seems to be the author's loss of spiritual intuition which might make such occasions incomprehensible. If something may be stated approximately Francis at this juncture is that he didn't reside as much as his father's needs - a failed son instead of a failed knight. the connection among Francis and his father is a gold mine that merits mental scrutiny - to make certain a Freudian could come to another end than a Jungian.

(5)The writer contends that he created friendship with the Muslims. hugely exagerated. Francis used to be a medieval guy and probably proposal as so much medieval Christians the idea of the hugely influential Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, the 1st preacher of the Crusades a century previous. Bernard acknowledged "to kill a Muslim isn't to devote homocide. " Francis faced the Sultan in the course of the Crusades. at the moment he justified the killing going as being beneficial till the Muslims accredited the Gospel of Jesus Christ. On his go back from the Crusades he not just didn't hold forth opposed to the Crusades yet his Order, the Franciscans, have been ordered via the Pope to evangelise the Crusades. during this means, they went from city to city to elevate males, funds and fabric for the Crusades. Had it now not been for the Franciscans the Crusades couldn't have occurred in that century. No objections from the founder here;

There are many strong books on Saint Francis. this isn't one among them. the writer lacks the spirit of the age, the non secular intuition which can understand what the actors are dealing with. i'm sorry to claim this isn't solid heritage. it truly is sloppy historical past reflecting the sentiments of the current into the previous. Of the potential 5 stars I remove 3 for wish of heritage yet supply it one big name for the canopy and one superstar for the paper it's written on. Why punish the blameless whether inanimate?

The unending and immediate vision of God. Even as God’s unchangeable wisdom established eternal death as the proportionate punishment of human disobedience and sin, the same wisdom established that the first man would have received eternal life as the natural and just recompense for his obedience to God. Thus, the reward of eternal life would have been man’s natural end and would have been due solely to man’s natural merit, and in no way to grace. Similarly the good angels after their trial received eternal life, not as a grace nor as in any wise unowed, but as the just reward of their obedience (De meritis operum, ch.
