In a world afflicted by violence, in a society marked by a growing gulf between rich and poor, in a church polarized around issues of power and authority, the example of St. Francis of Assisi remains fresh and relevant, a powerful model of the gospel in action. As award-winning author Michael Crosby points out, the memory of Francis does not simply challenge the violence and materialism of our culture. He embodies a positive, joy-filled example of humanity at its best. His mission to "repair the church" speaks directly to the crises facing the church today. His example of a nonviolent, justice-seeking, creation-centered spirituality speaks to the needs of our world and the deepest hungers of our hearts. Francis of Assisi is indeed a saint for all times.
Michael H. Crosby, a Capuchin-Franciscan priest, is the author of many popular books, including Spirituality of the Beatitudes: Matthew's Vision for the Church in an Unjust World, "Do You Love Me?" Jesus Questions the Church, and The Prayer that Jesus Taught Us. He gives talks around the world and lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
