A Franciscan View of Creation

Learning to Live in a Sacramental World

Ilia Delio

The purpose of this book is to elucidate in greater detail the theology of creation as a foundational starting point for contemporary belief and practices. The centrality in our faith tradition of the relationship between the Creator and all of creation and the reflection of the Trinity's glory in everything is undergoing a renaissance in our twenty-first century world. This book provides a fine stimulus for further reflection on this view, so fundamental to the spiritual vision of Francis and Clare. Dr. Delio here traces teh theme of God and creation from the time of the conversion of Francis through the first century of Franciscan life and thought, which culminated in the work of John Duns Scotus.

The Franciscan View of the Human Person

Some Central Elements

Dawn M. Nothwehr

This brief volume discusses several of the central elements of human person as found in those works of the Franciscan theological tradition which, when taken together, most sufficiently describe these qualities. As the tradition developed over the years, the intuitions and insights of St., Francis and St. Clarie of Assisi concerning the human person were developed and/or restated in language better understood by the people of a particular era. Two of the most famous early Franciscan theologians, Bonaventure and John Duns Scotus, did just that. This volume will, by drawing on the wisdom on the Franciscan tradition, contribute in a similar way to an understanding of the human person today.

Franciscan Wealth

From Voluntary Poverty to Market Society

Giacomo Todeschini

Originally published in Italian in 2004, Todeschini's studies highlight the relationship between the development of the Franciscan movement and medieval economic thinking and practice. While not the "first economists" the early Franciscans approached the marketplace out of their rigorous Christian religiosity and showed clearly the necessary connection between morality and business.

Franciscans and Creation

What is Our Responsibility?

Editor: Elise Saggau, OSF

Creation is a vast and awesome mystery. From the furthest horizons of an ever-expanding universe to the organization of a single cell, every level of nature manifests intricate beauty. For Francis of Assisi, as for Bonaventure, created reality reveals God's overflowing goodness reflected in the order, beauty, and harmony of nature. In this third volume of Washington Theological Union papers sponsored by the Commission on the Franciscan Intellectual Tradition (CFIT), we hope to catalyze further discussion and exploration of creation as the sacrament of God. The insights of our Franciscan heritage have much to offer our planet, which is today in a perilous situation. Wee believe that this rich theological tradition can provide a framework for incorporating environmental sensitivity into contemporary religious practice.

Franciscans and Healthcare

What is the Future?

Elise Saggau, OFM

In 1999, the Franciscan Center of the Washington Theological Union gathered experts to discuss the role of contemporary Franciscans in the ministry of healthcare. The talks were designed with a view both to spirituality and to maintaining Franciscan identity. At a time when Franciscan institutions are facing critical decisions, it is important to remember the tradition that brought them to where they are, the values that make them what they are, and the spirituality that identifies who they are. The contributions made here are a step in this direction.

Franciscans and the Liturgical Life:

Let Us Praise, Adore, and Give Thanks

Editor: Elise Saggau, O.S.F.

About two years before he died, Francis of Assisi composed his Canticle of the Creatures. Although he was very ill, blind, and near death, this light-filled hymn emerged from his inner depths as a song of praise and glory resounding throughout the whole creation. The Canticle, in a sense, recapitulated the life of Francis, a life of prayer, praise and adoration to the living God of overflowing love. His fidelity to the Liturgy of the Hours, his sacramental view of creation and his Christ-centeredness, all reflected in the Canticle, remind us that Francis's life was, at its core, a liturgical life.

Go Rebuild My House

Franciscans and the Church Today

Editor: Elise Saggau, OSF

Over the centuries in word and deed, Franciscan scholars and practitioners have demonstrated a clear and faithful understanding of what it means to live as followers of Christ in a defined ecclesia.
