A Man Called Francis relates the life of a married man in the United States who bears the wound marks of Jesus Christ on his hands. He undergoes the events surrounding the Suffering and Death of Jesus Christ each night of the year, more pronounced on all the Fridays of the year and during Lent, and with greater intensity during Holy Week.
Extensive references to Sacred Scripture will help you understand why and how Francis has been chosen to become a living sacrifice and how the same should apply to every Christian.
The readers of this book will be inspired to greater devotion to the Sufferings of Jesus Christ which can be experienced in the devout making of the Way of the Cross. This book, prayerfully read, will lead to a great love of and adoration for the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist, present with His Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity in the tabernacles throughout the world.
The sufferings of Francis will help the reader to relate to the Sacrifice of the Cross which is perpetuated at each Sacrifice of the Mass. Hundreds who already know of the mission given Francis and have been touched by him in the Name of Jesus Christ have already returned to the Church, to the Sacraments of the Holy Eucharist, to Reconciliation (Confession) or to their more frequent use. Through the evangelizing mission given Francis, many have been inspired to lead souls back to the Church or into the Church.
A non-assuming man, who seeks no publicity and would prefer the hidden life away from the world, is introduced by a priest who has been a spiritual guide to Francis.
No one is required to believe the contents of this book as they relate to Francis personally. You may decide. The author has only attempted to relate facts as he knows them. Jesus said, By their fruits you will know them (Mt. 7:16). This book was read by the Bishop, who gave his support of Francis' mission.
This book should bring to married people the profound realization that sanctity is for them, for the family, mothers and fathers, for children of all ages; teenagers and young adults. Francis mission is, in a special way, for the sanctification of the family as well as individuals.
