What is special about the spirituality of St Francis? Can it be possible for ordinary men and women today, with families, jobs and other responsibilities, to follow in the way of a thirteenth-century friar?

It is marked by spontaneity and emotional freedom, by openness to every human being and love for nature. It treasures both the evangelical and the catholic nature of the gospel.
