Francis and the Church: A Complicated Legacy

Join Sr. Margaret Carney, OSF and Fr. Dan Horan, OFM as they reflect together on the “difficult inheritance” that asks us to study the ways in which Francis was the “man wholly Catholic” but who also found ways to move beyond approved boundaries to bring the Gospel to others. Clare, too, had this life-long struggle. What can we utilize from our tradition to guide us in current situations of conflict and polarization within the church—situations that mirrors the larger society.

Marianne Cope Mission of Grace

The Franciscans have truly enriched my prayer life. Saint of the Day, Pause+Pray, Minute Meditations have really helped me spiritually and has nurtured my love for Jesus. Thank you for all the hard work that goes into these writings. – Donor

I am very blessed and feel even more blessed because I am able to give to the Franciscans. All of us in the Church need to help spread a bit of positivity, and I know of only a few organizations as well equipped as Franciscan Media to do that. – Wayne B.
