Love is What Matters gathers the writings of a dedicated Franciscan peacemaker, Friar Louie Vitale. In this series of short essays written by Vitale over the course of nearly thirty years he recounts his nonviolent striving towards peace and justice to end war, torture, racism, poverty, climate destruction and greed in the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi.
Friar Louie Vitale, OFM seeks to put the vision of peacemaking articulated and practiced by Francis and Clare of Assisi into practice. A former provincial of the St. Barbara Province in the western United States, Vitale was a co-founder of the Nevada Desert Experience and Pace e Bene Nonviolence Service. As a long-time social activist, he has engaged in civil disobedience for nearly four decades in pursuit of peace and justice, and has been arrested more than 400 times.
