Canticle of the Sun

Resource Toolbox

Composed by Saint Francis of Assisi (1225) in a little reed hut erected for him in the garden of Saint Damian's where he was on his last visit to Saint Clare during an attack of illness and blindness. In these eleven glorious lines of mystic praise, Saint Francis reveals an aspect of faith ever manifest in his attitude toward nature: that the creature's dependence on God is a corollary of God's bounty, and since creatures are formed in God's image, tbey are bound to dispense, as well as receive, His bounty.
