Francesco d'Assisi riconciliato
Laudato si': are the words with which Pope Francis wanted to start his encyclical letter "on the care of the common home." But they are also old words, used by St. Francis of Assisi almost as a refrain for his Canticle of Brother Sun. Ode cosmic, poetic masterpiece, call to brotherhood: the Canticle of the Sun was celebrated in every way. Yet Francis composed this explosion of joy and praise in a moment of almost unbearable pain. Physical suffering, along with the feeling of the failure of his mission, seem to tempt him beyond his strength. Just a bad situation much does this song bright. It is as if Francis had discovered something which reverses the common sense: God's creation is good and supportive; in it there is no trace of evil. The root of evil is in man's heart when he rejects the fellowship with the living. Jacques Dalarun guide the reader on a fascinating journey, full of surprises, made even more attractive by the numerous illustrations that accompany the text: led by the hand of its prose and its images, we discover and understand many things. On the words, the meaning, the reason of the Song. "There are few scholars who know how to make the connection, so often evoked, do the writings of Francis to one source, a strong point for the history of Francis. Jacques Dalarun is one of these. Seen by him, the Song buy the full value of the document life and spirit of Francis "(Attilio Bartoli Langeli).
