Who is Pope Francis and where is he leading the Church? To understand the impact of Pope Francis and his inspiration to the Catholic Church, indeed people of all religions, we turn to the two saints who are his inspiration, Saint Francis and Saint Clare of Assisi and the great love of their spirituality. Eight hundred years ago when the Church had fallen into scandal and hard times, Saint Francis and Saint Clare lifted the Church to new life, new beginnings. Today the Church suffers the same crises. Today Pope Francis is looking at the heart full spirituality of Saint Francis and Saint Clare to lift the Church with less pomp and ceremony and more embracing the poor and unwanted. The Love Letters is the love story of Francis and Clare and the challenge for Pope Francis and the world to discover the same love in our hearts, our neighbor, nature, and all creation. The Love Letters is historical fiction. What if Saint Francis and Saint Clare were to meet Pope Francis? What would be their thoughts, dreams and hopes for a new Church? The Love Letters is the mystical love discovered by two of the world's greatest mystics long ago asking who is the new Pope Francis? Can he rebuild the Church into a living Church, a church less concerned with rules and order and more about forgiveness and compassion? In the silence of our hearts, in giving to those in need, Saint Francis, Saint Clare, and Pope Francis offer a new vision for us all to become instruments of true peace and joy. Bruce Davis, Ph.D. has pursued the footsteps of Saint Francis and Saint Clare for many years. For twelve years he and his wife, Ruth, lived in Assisi, Italy the historic home of these remarkable saints. There they began the Assisi Retreat Center which was awarded one of the top ten meditation centers in the world by Travel Leisure Magazine and CNN. Recently, Bruce and Ruth opened Silent Stay, a new retreat center near Napa, California. Bruce is the author of several books including Monastery Without Walls, The Magical Child Within You, and Simple Peace-The Spiritual Life of Saint Francis of Assisi.
