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.
