A program presented in partnership with the Franciscan School of Theology
The life story and poetry of Jacopone da Todi will be used to reflect on and respond to the challenges of living as Christians in a post-Christian world and the implications of this for our Lenten journey toward Easter. Jacopone (1230-1306) was a Franciscan Friar caught between the structures of the institutional church and his commitment to the radical practices and commitments of life as a Lesser Brother. His poetry describes the experience of his personal struggle to remain faithful to Francis of Assisi and the life of the gospel in a period of spiritual darkness and silence, revealing what he learned along the way.
No fee and no registration required. Program will be in the Francis Room.
