Franciscan Priesthood

Click Here To Purchase

The relationship between the Franciscan vocation to live as friars minor and the ministerial call to serve the church and world as ordained presbyters has always been a complicated, if at times divisive, subject to explore. This short book explores the foundation for the possibility of ordained priests in the Order of Friars Minor from the perspective of the Rule (Regula Bullata) and the Franciscan historical tradition. It originated as a response to an article by another Franciscan with a very different perspective and now is made available for a broader audience to continue informed discussion about ordained ministry, the Franciscan tradition, and the role of religious orders in the world and Church.
