Being Franciscan

Living the Tradition
  • By Nicholas Worssam
Product Description
Franciscan spirituality, with its characteristic simplicity, joy, openness and welcome to all, compassionate action and love for creation - all undergirded by prayer and study, offers as compelling a vision for today's world as when Francis of Assisi first responded to God's call over 800 years ago. For all seeking inspiration for living the Franciscan charism today, this lively and informed guide introduces its key figures and essential writings. The author, an Anglican Franciscan friar and theologian, draws out the movement's core teachings from its founding figures and its earliest texts: - Francis and the essence of prayer and reconciliation with all created things; - Clare of Assisi and contemplative practice; - Giles of Assisi, solitude, storytelling and spiritual direction; - Bonaventure, study and spiritual wisdom - Angela of Foligno and mystical experience; - Jacapone da Todi and praise in poetry and song. Intended as an introduction to living the Franciscan charism today, this also includes a reader's guide with questions for personal or group discussion.
