Eearly morn in Assisi, a day after the earthquake in Italy…. streets are still empty… it is quiet…. a gentle soft blue sky…. a day like velvet and silk …. and you think of the tragedy close by… villages destroyed by the earthquake… people buried under stones… it could have happened to Assisi…. and you become ever more still… reach out in compassion and prayer….. while you breathe in and out the fresh air of a summer day…. a day like silver and silk…

music: "peaceful flow" by Joachim Goerke ( Cd)
One of those winter days in Heidelberg, you walk from sunshine through haze into brilliant golden light and approaching Blue of the evening. Ah and you listen to the melody of the river and the song of eternal love
A contemplative walk along the river Neckar...
A day within days... a moment in time... a mystery beyond words
The Neckar, the beautiful river in Heidelberg is quiet...
peace in the air... sparkling light dancing on frozen water
Dedicated in gratitude and love to you and the beauty of creation.

Weshalb entscheiden sich immer wieder zahlreiche Menschen, in den Franziskanerorden einzutreten? Die Autorin und vierfache Mutter Ingrid Henzler hat sich nach Assisi begeben und dort zwölf Franziskaner befragt: Frauen und Männer, Menschen verschiedenen Alters und unterschiedlicher Herkunft. Leben wie Franz von Assisi? Geht das überhaupt im 21. Jahrhundert, 800 Jahre nach dem Tod des Heiligen? In ungewöhnlich offener Weise erzählen sie in dem Buch "Gottsucher: Leben wie Franz von Assisi" von ihrer Berufung und ihrem Leben in Gehorsam, Keuschheit und Armut. Uli Bobinger hat mit Ingrid Henzler gesprochen.
