eBook - 2015
Rate this:
A book about Franciscans and their economics and the way that Franciscans are developing a more relational economy as they serve the poor and vulnerable around the world. Francis fraternal economy is not primarily about dollars and cents, market shares or stock derivatives. It is about the destiny of men and women in the real world and how they come about a new security and peace in God. By the time his captivity as a prisoner of war had come to an end, Francis had given up on the violence and greed that fed the frenzy of Assisi. He found his peace in mercy: in the mercy that God had for him and in the mercy that he could show to those who were poor and suffering. Francis gave away everything he had and felt the first taste of freedom in his whole life. He had given up the need to climb and be right. He had let go of the desire to imitate majesty and control the world. He would never again have to go to war, because there was nothing that anyone else had that he wanted. There was nothing he had that he would not forfeit. He had Christ and Christ had him, and that was enough for Francis to feel the peace that passes all understanding.
