As the world watches with curiosity and admiration, as Pope Francis tries to turn around the Catholic Church, one might wonder what the beloved Saint Francis of Assisi and Saint Clare might have thought of this Herculean effort. After all, they were among the first to call for a simple, unembellished church that teaches the love of all things, cares for the sick, the poor while touching the heart of joy in all.
And that's precisely what bestselling author Bruce Davis, Ph.D. wondered...which is how he came to write the beautiful, moving and charming book The Love Letters: Saint Francis and Saint Clare of Assisi Meet Pope Francis (Grave Distractions Publications).
Guest Dr. Bruce Davis, a globally respected psychologist, has spent the last three decades promoting the inner peace that was the cornerstone of these two saint's lives. He and his wife Ruth began leading retreats in 1983, and eventually came to open the Assisi Retreat Center, which was called one of the world's 10 best by both Travel and Leisure Magazine andCNN. Today, they operate Silent Stay, a new retreat center on a stunning hillside near Napa, California, where many come to turn off their electronic tethers for mediation, quiet and inner exploration.
