About Franciscan Media

Tau Cross of Franciscans

We are Franciscan Media, a sponsored ministry of the Franciscan Friars of St. John the Baptist Province. We strive to inspire a loving world that embraces the Franciscan spirit of harmony, joy, and simplicity. May our resources renew your spirit as we share God’s love in the spirit of St. Francis.

We offer several free subscriptions, each designed to enrich the spiritual lives of our readers. If you are drawn to words of inner reflection, Minute Meditations could be for you. If you find strength and solace in the lives of the saints, you’ll love our Saint of the Day. If you are looking for a simple way to pray, Pause+Pray can provide an easy structure to create a daily routine. On our blog, Franciscan Spirit, you’ll find inspiration for living your faith in the real world.

Our magazine, St. Anthony Messenger, is widely regarded as a Catholic publication that speaks to both the richness of our tradition and the social issues of our time, and we are a proud publisher of some of the most thoughtful Catholic books on the market. Each and every product we offer furthers our Franciscan mission to encounter a God of love through compassion and connection.

You matter to us. In fact, you are the reason we’re here. May our offerings be a blessing as you pursue the peace and wholeness found in Christ.
