Aired 2008-09. Presented by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops On the eve of the 800th anniversary of the founding of the Franciscan Order (1209), the centuries-old questions remain: Why does the whole world come to Assisi, the birthplace of Saints Francis and Clare? What draws pilgrims and tourists, church and government leaders, Christian, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists and those without any creed to this ancient city in the Umbrian valley of Italy? In "Assisi Pilgrimage," real-life pilgrims walk in the footsteps of these two beloved saints, learn about their times, struggles and joys while finding their own answers to those age-old questions.
