Milites Christi, a Duke Divinity School student group seeking to develop a pastoral response to the problems of war and peace, will hold a public talk on "Post-Traumatic Saint: Understanding Resiliency and Healing by Examining the Life of Francis of Assisi."

The talk will be by Divinity School Th.M. student Jeff Matsle, who will share his life story of being a professional soldier, prisoner of war, social outcast, and enemy of the state and church until being transformed by readings on the life of St. Francis of Assisi.
