The Life and Legacy of St. Francis on BBC Radio 4

BBC Radio 4 is featuring a series of programs on the life and legacy of St. Francis. Three of our friars are featured: Br. Eunan McMullan and Br. Alessandro Brustenghi in Assisi, and Br. Caoimhín O’Laoide in Rome.

The first episodes are already available on the BBC site. On “Brother Sun, Sister Moon”, the Revd Sharon Grenham-Thompson journeys to Assisi accompanied by Kantos Chamber Choir to explore the life and legacy of St. Francis. She follows in the footsteps of St Francis, visiting the sites that have become associated with his life and meets men and women who have chosen to follow his path.

The rest of the Daily Service programs will be available shortly, with a final program scheduled to be broadcast for St Francis’ patronal feast.
