The Mystic Imagination of St. Francis of Assisi

Thursday, October 3, 7:00 p.m.

Gabrie lUhleinJoin Sister Gabriele for an evening of Franciscan exploration into the profound mystery of dying as high soul-work for all beings. October 3 is the traditional celebration of the holy night when St. Francis of Assisi welcomed and embraced Sister Death in 1226. Franciscans everywhere celebrate this “Transitus” with candlelight, story-telling and a celebration of welcoming St. Francis to new life in God. Using images and original texts, we will celebrate the mystic imagination of St. Francis that allowed him to call all things Brother and Sister—even Sister Death.  

Gabriele Uhlein, OSF, PhD, is a Wheaton Franciscan sister deeply influenced by Hildegard of Bingen, Francis of Assisi and Teilhard de Chardin. She lives and works at the Christine Center, a natural sanctuary for seekers of all faith traditions that is committed to spiritual deepening for global transformation. For more, visit
