Most of us know the 11th step prayer, attributed to St. Francis, that begins, “Make me a channel of your peace…”. But you may not know how closely his 13th century spiritual practices reflect our modern 12-step approach. If we aspire to maintain our spiritual condition and become channels of peace, we can learn much from the life of St. Francis.
Join us to reinvigorate your recovery by contemplating your 12-step journey through the lens of Francis’ life. You’ll gain insights into your own recovery practices by learning how Francis met his challenges through surrender, gratitude, self-examination and prayer. You will have an opportunity to examine and refresh your program while learning and sharing with others who are committed to recovery. All of this set among the same streets of ancient stone that Francis walked 800 years ago.
