"Francis did not write philosophical treatises, but when he wished to convey his vision of things, from the troubadours good brother, he began to sing: sang all creatures. And in this song he gave us the depths of his soul and the secret of his new birth. His Canticle is the confession of a man in whom the archetypal forces of life have found the transparency of sources and glory of the sun. "
In this brief study on the Canticle of the Creatures É. Leclerc crosses the poetic dimension of the text and its religious impetus to propose an analysis of the inner life of Francis. He arrived to find a man who could see the creation in its clear original beauty, as it was designed by God and offered to man because it could learn the meaning of life is hidden in the humility and service.
In this way it hears once again for us with all its force the surprising message of universal brotherhood that binds us not only to humans but also to the whole creation.
