Preface

Prayers were very important in St. Francis' life, so he wrote many orisons to glorify God.

The prayers collected in this book are among the most beautiful ones written by the Saint of Assisi.

Life of Saint Francis of Assisi

Saint Francis of Assisi was born in 1182 from Pietro di Bernardone and Giovanna Pica. His mother called him Giovanni (John), but his father changed this name to Francesco (Francis), in honour of France, country he loved very much.

Francis studied music, poetry, Latin, French and vernacular language, but, since his father was a very rich merchant of clothes and spices, he had to follow the family's business. So the young Francis found himself working in his father's shop.

In November 1202 broke out a war between the cities of Assisi and Perugia. Many people took part in that war, among whom there was as well Francis. When the two armies clashed, Assisi was defeated and Francis was taken as a prisoner of war. His captivity lasted more than one year long and was terrible. Moreover, Francis, when finally got home, was very ill. Only his mother's loving care and time helped him to regain his health.

Later, between 1203 and 1204, Francis wished to participate in the crusade to the Holy Land, but arrived in Spoleto he had a vision from God who told him to go back.

In 1207 Francis sold all goods in his father's shop, then he brought the earned money to the priest of San Damiano's church, so that the man of the cloth could repair the house of God, which was falling down.

As result of that episode, there arose a dispute between Pietro and his son, which was resolved with the intervention of the Assisi's Bishop, before whom Francis publicly renounced to his father's wealth.
