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.
