Written by the author of the best-selling Francis: The Journey and the Dream, this brief meditation describes Francis' method of prayer. Francis considered this three-fold path to God a precondition for anyone wishing to achieve a spiritual interior life. The path has three loves which are really the same: loving God through loving others, loving nature, and loving one's self. Focusing on the Other through love is the very center of Franciscan thought. How we love and the extent of that love then teaches us how to pray.
