Franciscan Connections – The Cord:  A Spiritual Review (Quarterly Journal)

Franciscan Connections, a quarterly review which deals with topics having to do with the Franciscan spiritual tradition, celebrates sixty-five years.

Franciscan Connections is a spiritual review that connects, communicates, and conveys the best of Franciscan learning in the twenty-first century.  Our regular content consists of Franciscan Impact in Healthcare, Art, Business, Science, Literature and Education.  We want to connect men and women to the positive, progressive and prophetic Franciscan tradition.

Franciscan Connections is always looking for original nonfiction pieces, short fiction, photography, artwork, scholarly articles, and book reviews. Our journal seeks to enlarge the understanding of and appreciation for the Franciscan vision and spirituality. In general, familiarity with what we have published in the past is the best guide to our needs. However, inquiries regarding issue-specific themes are welcome.  Please click here for Franciscan Connections submission guidelines
