Francis understood that the Fifth Crusade was part of an ongoing just war in response to Muslim invasions of Christian lands, which included many attacks against Italian city-states all along the peninsula over the course of centuries.

This is sure to upset a lot of liberals.

His Holiness has sent an explicit and revolutionary message to a Church that until now has been too prudent in the conversion of Muslims.

Hadn't thought much about it, but it was a refreshingly courageous act in contrast to the increasingly timid & political-minded behavior of the large denomitions these days.

Sounds like a great book! St. Francis was responsible for bringing me to the Church.

St. Francis of Assisi was a stigmatic. I doubt he wore Birkenstocks. LOL!
