CLARE & FRANCIS [DVD]
This outstanding movie - shot on location in Italy - is unique among films on St. Francis because of the historical accuracy of the story and its authentic spirit of joy and piety Francis was known for, as well as the major role played by Clare who is given equal stature with Francis. The daughter of a patrician family and the son of a rich merchant who leave all to follow Christ. Francis renounces his inheritance of wealth to live the Gospel and serve the poor and outcasts. Clare reads deep into his heart and decides to follow him, leaving her home and family to give herself as the bride of Christ. Both founded major religious orders and together they inspired many to follow their radical call to live the Gospel, and their impact has even reached across the centuries to change the world. DVD Special Features: A 16 page booklet with study questions, biographies of St. Clare and St. Francis, resource list, and a behind the scenes and special “Making of Clare and Francis” featurette with Franciscan Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa, Preacher to the Papal Household.
