Jon M. Sweeney Lord, Make Me An Instrument of Your Peace


The Complete Prayers of St. Francis and St. Clare, with Selections from Brother Juniper, St. Anthony of Padua, and Other Early Franciscans
We do not immediately associate Francis and Clare with prayer and praying. St. Francis, according to the most common legends, rarely sat still. St. Clare did, more so, but that was probably mostly because of the convent and the grille and the conventions of the time: she couldn’t be a walkabout friar. However, they did sit still. And they stood. And they danced. And they fasted. And they sang. In all these ways, Francis and Clare prayed for hours each day, as did the brothers and sisters who came after them on the Franciscan way. This prayer book gathers the stories and words of the prayer life and prayers of these remarkable Christians.

Jon M. Sweeney Francis of Assisi in His Own Words


Reading Francis's writings is like being «on the road» with him 800 years ago.
Biographies will only take you so far. It's impossible to truly understand Francis of Assisi without reading his own words. A scholar and lover of Francis, Sweeney has added six writings to his bestselling compilation, additional texts that we're most certain came from Francis himself. Now, short writings such as «The Form of Life He Wished for Clare,» «The Sermon to the Birds,» and «The Source of True Joy,» combine with Francis's Rules, letters, messages, songs, praises, canticles, and final spiritual Testament in a most ideal introduction to the saint. An expanded introduction and notes add historical and theological context.

Jon M. Sweeney Light in the Dark Ages


The Middle Ages were not so very dark, as the old textbooks say. As you will discover in this intriguing portrait of the first Franciscans, we live in dark ages whenever we become preoccupied with power. In this popular history, Jon Sweeney reveals the timeless temptations that come with being human–greed, competition, ego, and selfishness–as well as the many ways that Francis and Clare of Assisi inspired change and brought light into darkness.
Discover how Francis was first found by God and then joined by Clare despite the violent objections of her family. Explore a variety of issues that they faced, including the treatment of lepers in medieval society, corruption in the Church, and attitudes toward the created world. You will also learn how Clare's spirituality influenced that of other prominent women, how St. Francis lost control of his own movement, and why Francis's body was secretly buried upon his death.
The examples of early Franciscan spirituality challenge any of us who would follow Christ today. How would we view a young person today who rejected family for spiritual reasons? Is it possible for men and women to have deep friendship and remain true to a call to chastity? Is intentional poverty of any value? Have we sentimentalized family to the point of ignoring what Jesus taught his disciples on the subject?

Gardner Edmund G. The Road to Siena


Meet the 14th century woman who fed the poor, challenged bishops and kings, and perhaps even saved the papacy.
Catherine of Siena's influence was felt throughout the kingdoms of Europe. She enjoyed the confidence of popes, royalty, and most of all, the common people of Italy. A complicated woman, she was able to speak bluntly to a queen: «Instead of a woman, you have become the servant and slave of nothingness, making yourself the subject of lies and of the demon who is their father»; and also encourage the wife of a simple tailor: «Clothe yourself in the royal virtues.»
Her story is told in this landmark biography, first published a century ago and praised by Evelyn Underhill as the best modern biography of a saint ever written. Long out of print, this new edition has been slightly abridged and generously supplemented with the reflections of other biographers, historians, and artists—who shed fresh light on what we know about an amazing woman.
"Sweeney achieves a fine balance between excellent scholarship and sweet accessibility for every average reader." —Walter Wangerin, Jr., author of St. Julian and The Book of God

"Caterina Benincasa, whom we now call Saint Catherine of Siena, was born on March 25, 1347—the Feast of the Annunciation, the first day of the new year as it was reckoned in those days in Italy. It had been 120 years since Saint Francis had died at Assisi in the arms of Lady Poverty, his mystical bride, and a quarter of a century since Dante had passed away in exile at Ravenna. These two men are Catherine's elder brothers in the spirit. The seraphic father of Assisi, standard-bearer of the Crucified, as the voice in the high vision on Mount Verna had hailed him, is her predecessor in the mystical life. And Catherine is the literary successor of the poet of the Divine Comedy in the history of religious thought in Italy…." (the beginning of Chapter 1)
Edmund G. Gardner's work on Catherine of Siena was groundbreaking in its day, and is still one of the most important biographies ever written of a medieval saint. He was the professor of Italian at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, and wrote many books over a long career, on Dante, English mystics, the cities of Florence and Siena, Arthurian legends, and Italian Renaissance painters.
Jon M. Sweeney is best known for his editing of Paul Sabatier's classic biography, The Road to Assisi: The Essential Biography of St. Francis, which has sold more than 40,000 copies and was a featured selection of The History Book Club, Crossings, and Book-of-the-Month Club; and for his editing of J. B. Bury's classic biography of Patrick of Ireland, Ireland's Saint: The Essential Biography of St. Patrick, also made a selection of History Book Club and BOMC. He lives in Vermont.

John Read Catherine Booth


Catherine Booth's achievements–as a revivalist, social reformer, champion of women's rights, and, with her husband William Booth, co-founder of The Salvation Army–were widely recognized in her lifetime. However, Catherine Booth's life and work has since been largely neglected. This neglect has extended to her theological ideas, even though they were critical to the formation of Salvationism, the spirituality of the movement she cofounded. This book examines the implicit theology that undergirds Catherine Booth's Salvationist spirituality and reveals the ethical concerns at the heart of her soteriology and the integral relationship between the social and evangelical aspects of Christian mission in her thought. Catherine Booth emerges as a significant figure from the Victorian era, a British theologian and church leader with a rare if not unique intellectual and theological perspective: that of a woman.

G. K. Chesterton St. Francis of Assisi


Saint Francis of Assisi is the founder of the Franciscan Order and one of the most influential figures of medieval Christian history. First published in 1923, G. K. Chesterton’s “St. Francis of Assisi” is considered by many to be the definitive biography of the beloved religious leader and saint. Saint Francis was born to a prosperous merchant family and lived his early life carefree and consumed with material possessions. He underwent a religious conversion as a young adult and began to devote himself to a life of poverty and faith. While Saint Francis was never formally educated or ordained as a priest, he traveled the countryside preaching and built a strong following of faithful devotees who were inspired by his pure life of abstinence and piety. Saint Francis eventually received formal permission from the pope to create the Franciscan Order, which grew quickly. Centuries later, Saint Francis remains venerated the world over and is often associated with his love of animals and the natural world. “St. Francis of Assisi” is an engrossing and riveting portrayal of a man wholly devoted to his faith. This edition includes a biographical afterword.

Jon M. Sweeney Margaret and the Pope Go to Assisi


In this fourth installment of “The Pope's Cat” series, Margaret and the Pope travel for the first time together away from the Vatican and out of Rome. They go by train to the Umbrian hill town of Assisi, a place of pilgrimage for Christians all over the world who want to remember the life of St. Francis of Assisi. Together they visit the great Basilica named for St. Francis, greet Franciscan friars at the monastery, attend a World Day of Prayer for Peace, meet religious leaders (each, it seems, with a very different hat!) from around the world, and see evidence of the spirit of St. Francis all over town.
Most of all, the Pope shows his love and care for his vulnerable creature friend, as at the beginning of the book when someone from the Curia has frightened Margaret and she's hiding in a closet in the Pope's apartment. “Don’t worry, il mio amore.” (Il mio amore means “My love.”) “People can be so fussy, can’t they?” the Pope says, picking her up in his arms.

Группа авторов The Complete Francis of Assisi


There are many editions of the writings of St. Francis, and biographies about him, but here in one volume are both, plus the complete text of the late medieval work, The Little Flowers, which did more to establish the legend of the man than any other work. This «Paraclete Giants» edition includes the complete Road to Assisi, Paul Sabatier's ground-breaking and foundational biography of the saint, first published in French in 1894 and re-issued and expanded in 2002; the complete Francis in His Own Words: The Essential Writings; and The Little Flowers, thus offering the best introduction to St. Francis yet available between two covers. Other Paraclete Giants include The Complete Julian of Norwich and The Complete Introduction to the Devout Life, both translated and introduced by Fr. John-Julian, OJN.

John Clare Careless Rambles by John Clare


Born in 1793, John Clare lived and worked during the Golden Age of British poetry, the time of Shelley, Byron, Keats, and Coleridge. In the grand tradition of English nature writing, he stands alongside Wordsworth as a poet of extraordinary humanity and great spirit. Clare was 18 years old when the first Luddite riots occurred. He was deeply resistant to the first years of England's Enclosure, and he offers a contemporaneous look at what the world was like for those struggling with the impact of the first Industrial Revolution. Uneducated but remarkably well read, Clare was briefly celebrated in London, only to spend his final years in a lunatic asylum. He died in one on May 20, 1864, almost exactly one year before William Butler Yeats was born and the world set out on the path to Modernism.As James Reeves, an early critic and admirer, has said, «The existence of Clare the poet is, of course, a miracle . . . This is its most precious gift. Clare was a happy poet; there is more happiness in his poetry than in that of most others. This was no mere animal contentment of body and senses, but a quiet ecstasy and inward rapture. Such happiness is not to be had except at a price.»Tom Pohrt's drawings and watercolors have been widely admired. There are few alive whose sensibility more properly matches Clare's—it's as if Samuel Palmer had taken the commission to illustrate a selection of the peasant poet. Pohrt has himself made the selection of poems from the vast quantity that survived Clare's chaotic life. Robert Hass joins the project to place Clare's work in the larger context of nature poetry in the West. The result is a book sure to please those who know already of Clare's fine poems and those for whom this book will be their exciting introduction.

Jane Austen Northanger Abbey


To coincide with the launch of The Austen Project an ebook collection of Jane Austen’s timeless novels.‘Northanger Abbey! These were thrilling words, and wound up Catherine's feelings to the highest point of ecstasy.’Considered the most light-hearted and satirical of Austen’s novels, Northanger Abbey tells the story of an unlikely young heroine Catherine Morland. While staying in Bath, Catherine meets Henry Tilney and his sister Eleanor who invite her to their family estate, Northanger Abbey. A fan of Gothic Romance novels, naive Catherine is soon letting her imagination run wild in the atmospheric abbey.A coming-of-age novel, Austen expertly parodies the Gothic romance novels of her time and reveals much about her unsentimental view of love and marriage in the eighteenth century.
