Franciscan Spirituality -

Following Saint Francis Today

by Brother Ramon SSF

What is special about the spirituality of Saint Francis? Can it be possible for ordinary men and women today, with families, jobs and other responsibilities, to follow in the way of a thirteenth-century mendicant friar?

Brother Ramon SSF shows us that Franciscan Spirituality is as compelling and relevant today as ever. It is marked by spontaneity and emotional freedom, by openness to every human being and love for nature. It treasures both the evangelical and the catholic nature of the gospel. It is rooted in a biblical faith and in reverence for the whole of creation.

Franciscan Spirituality introduces us to the world of Francis and his first followers and shows how their excitement and wonder at Jesus alive in their midst can still be recaptured.

Brother Ramon was Guardian of Glasshampton Monastery before he began living the hermit life, whilst remaining within the grounds of the monastery.
