Written by the author of the best-selling Francis: The Journey and the Dream, this brief meditation describes Francis' method of prayer, which he believed neccessary for a spiritual interior life. The path has three loves which are really the same: loving God through others, through loving nature, and through loving one's self. Focusing on the Other through love is the very center of Franciscan thought. How we love and the extent of that love then teaches us how to pray.
