St. Francis and the Song of Brotherhood and Sisterhood

Eric Doyle, OFM

In 1981 the author wrote: “The Canticle of Brother Sun is a charter of peace . . . the most basic meaning of peace is being at home with all creatures, loving all life, reverencing all matter. The Canticle has a message of peace for all nations. . . . ”. For those who find in St. Francis an inspiration, this book will provide practical starting points for the application of the Franciscan way to everyday life.

Stoking the Fire of Hope

Fioretti for Our Times

by Hermann Schaluck, OFM

The narratives - or, Fioretti (an anonymous collection of texts from the fourteenth century about the early days of the Franciscan family) - presented in this book attempt to draw from subjective experiences and events in today's Franciscan family on several continents and in many cultures. In the metaphors and comparisons of picturesque and sometimes unusual language, they present to Francis's brothers and sisters today's problems and challenges and the question of the meaning of the Franciscan heritage in contexts different from that of the Middle Ages.

The Teacher of His Heart

There was a passion, an intense energy of love that drove Francis to center his entire life in Christ. Christ was, indeed, the teacher of his heart. This book concentrates on the Christological dimension of Francis’s thought seen through the prism of his writings and against the background of the world in which he lived.

Trinitarian Perspectives in the Franciscan Theological Tradition

Mariah Calisi, Ph.D.

Trinitarian Perspectives in the Franciscan Theological Tradition by Dr. Maria Calisi builds substantially on the previous volumes in the Franciscan Heritage series sponsored by the Secretariat for the Retrieval of the Franciscan Intellectual Tradition (CFIT) of the English Speaking Conference of the Order of Friars Minor. Dr. Calisi is an authority on the theology of Saint Bonaventure. Her exposition of the foundations of the Seraphic Doctor's theology in the contemplative experience of and reflection on the relational nature of God's life retrieves an important theological perspective applicable to our contemporary search for meaning. Well schooled in the patristic inheritance, Calisis engages the reader with a simple but profound analysis of the creedal sign shared by all Christians: In the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. In these pages we will discover how doctrine can shape life, and life, doctrine; how faith-filled human beings rooted in Trinitarian love can bear great fruit for both Church and society by engaging practitioners in action supportive of personal dignity, ecumenical relationships, social transformation, and ecclesial reform.

True Followers of Justice

Identity, Insertion and Itinerancy among the Early Franciscans

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.

An Unencumbered Heart

A Tribute to Clare of Assisi 1253 - 2003

A certain Lady Clare died in San Damiano near Assisi on 10 August 1253. She did not know that seven centuries later she would become the patron saint of television. All she wanted in her adult life was to live according to the Gospel of Jesus Christ like her fellow Assisian and friend, Francis. It took Clare her lifetime to obtain the recognition she wanted: the papal written approval of the life of the Poor Sisters of San Damiano. When the long awaited papal bull arrived on 9 August 1253, she had done what she wanted to do; she passed away two days later. In tribute to the 750th anniversary of her death, Franciscan Institute Publications offers this volume of essays on Clare.

Women of the Streets

Early Franciscan Women and their Mendicant Vocation

Darleen Pryds

This book about Mendicant women outside the cloister is unique in its content. Rose of Viterbo, Angela of Foligno, Margaret of Cortona, and Sancia, Queen of Naples, were all born within the first century of the Franciscan Order. As women who pursued their religious vocation of volumtary poverty, itinerancy, and preaching outside of monastic walls – in the streets and in their homes – they could very well be called the first generation of mendicant women.
