    One thought on “Little Flowers of Francis of Assisi: A New Translation”

    1. Tales of Francis of Assisi, some real, some obscure and some based on legends. This is a new translation, but the only translation I read. Francis was holy, he was real and he was subversive in his day. No wonder his spirit lives on.
