Additional DescriptionMore Details

Dying, As A Franciscan
The preparation for the transitus to eternal life by Francis and Clare is well documented in the literature and the art of the lives of both. The Ninth National Franciscan Forum addressed the questions: Is there a particularly Franciscan manner of approaching our passage to the Lord and of helping others do the same? Are there particular elements within the Franciscan tradition – stories, symbols and rituals – on which we can all draw to help us and others whom we accompany in this ultimate pilgrimage of the human journey? The presentations at this conference by Michael Cusato, OFM, Thomas Nairn, OFM, Mary Petrosky, FMM, Daniel Sumasy, OFM, Thomas Lynch and Kathleen McCarron, OSF, addressed those questions and provides perspectives on death and dying with a specifically Franciscan interpretation.

Rule of the Friars Minor, 1209-2009: Historical Perspectives, Lived Realties

Spirit and Life Series
Please click HERE for a sample of the book.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

This volume makes available the results of a unique conference held at the Franciscan Institute in April 2009 to celebrate the 800th anniversary of the founding of the Order of Friars Minor through the confirmation of the propositum vitae of the early friars by Pope Innocent III on April 16, 1209. This conference brought together for a brief but intense period of time two groups of people who do not often dialogue with each other: scholars of the Rule and practitioners of the Rule–those who study the Rule in an academic manner and those given the responsibility by their provinces of teaching and modeling the practice of the Rule in daily life. To that end, this volume presents six scholarly essays and nine interventions offered by friars from nine different areas of the globe who shared the challenges of living the Rule in diverse cultural, national and religious contexts.

True Followers of Justice: Identity, Insertion and Intinerancy Among the Early Franciscans

Spirit and Life Series
 
Please click HERE for a sample of the book.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

edited by Michael F. Cusato, OFM, Keith Warner, OFM, and Elise Saggau, OSF.

As thirteenth-century urban populations increased, the friars, entrusted by the Church with the ministry of preaching, naturally needed to go where the people were. At the same time they needed to honor their way of life, which required them to live prayerfully in fraternities, yet not settle down permanently in stable religious houses after the monastic model.
