Respectfully Yours: Signed and Sealed, Francis of Assisi

Aspects of His Authorship and Focuses of His Spirituality

Through a meticulous reading of his writing, one can discover Francis the Mystic. The authors pay full attention to what Francis has to say and pay special attention to texts from the liturgy of Francis’s time. It is undeniable that at least some of his texts were subject to deliberate composition techniques. By bringing these to light, the "coordinates" or "power lines" of his spirituality become visible.

Rule of the Friars Minor, 1209-2009

Historical Perspective, Lived Realities

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.

Spiritual Warfare and Six Other Spiritual Writings by Peter of John Olivi

translation, introductions and notes by Robert J. Karris, OFM

People generally identify Peter of John Olivi (d. 1298) as a theologian or philosopher. Some might also characterize him as a Franciscan reformer who ran afoul of the Roman authorities after his death. Few would venture to call him a Spiritual Director. Yet there are short works under his name that demonstrate that he was indeed a Spiritual Director. The audience for these works generally consisted of lay people who wanted to make progress on the road to perfection as well as many who felt the end times were upon them. Olivi’s four spiritual writings helped the Beguins prepare to interpret the cosmic significance of the persecuting events - the Inquisition - soon to interrupt their lives. These writings are augmented with three other pieces: His treatise on The Lord’s Prayer; his treatise on The Seven Sentiments of Christ Jesus; an abbreviated version of his commentary on Mary’s response to Gabriel in Luke 1:26-38. These additional three writings help give a wider window onto Peter of John Olivi, Spiritual Director.
