St. Francis of Assisi: His Life, Times, Conversion and Charism
St. Francis of Assisi, one of the most beloved Saints of all time, is known for his deep love of Christ crucified – receiving even the physical stigmata – his love of the poor and of poverty itself, and his profound relationship with all of God’s creation in nature. He is also the founder of one of the Church’s greatest religious orders, and most recently, for the first time in history, the Pope has taken Francis’ name as his own. Dr. Peter J. Colosi, Associate Professor of Moral Theology at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, who earned an MA degree in Franciscan Studies from St. Bonaventure University and has given countless walking tours of St. Francis’ hometown, will paint a colorful picture of Francis’ early life, his conversion, his spirituality and the order he founded. Delivered at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish, Overbrook, PA Mar. 19, 2014. St. Francis of Assisi: His Life, Times, Conversion and Charism from Peter J. Colosi on Vimeo.
