Francis of Assisi's Sermon on the Mount: Lessons from the Admonitions 

Talbot applies the timeless words of St. Francis to our troubled times. In the United States and across the world, we are experiencing polarization, anger, and violence. But God is still in control, and it is important to dig deep into our Christian heritage in a way that speaks to all people. St. Francis is one of the great saints who somehow reaches across all divides, touches hearts and souls, and brings spiritual peace.
Talbot explores Francis’s Admonitions: twenty-eight teachings that are among the most beautiful and troubling of the saint’s writings. Covering sacramental theology of the Eucharist, to communal issues of consecrated life, to very private aspects of faith and devotion, these Admonitions provide clear and radical road signs to the destination on our spiritual journey in Christ.

Editorial Reviews

“In this exploration of the twenty-eight Admonitions of Saint Francis, monastic John Michael Talbot reminds us that these challenging, polarizing times demand a countercultural response: self-renunciation combined with a life of charity, concern, and consideration in community. The wisdom of these ‘Franciscan Beatitudes’ is perennial.” –Albert Haase, OFM, author of Practical Holiness and Catching Fire Becoming Flame

“Saint Francis is the great exemplar of Christian love. He was patient; he was kind. He didn’t put on airs. John Michael Talbot helps us to see how a love like Francis’ might live in a body like mine, wearing clothes like mine, working a job like mine. In short, he shows us how our world and we might find happiness at last." –Mike Aquilina, award-winning author of many books, including The Fathers of the Church
