Interview mit Ingrid Henzler

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.
