What Is the Franciscan Spirit?

Posted by Richard Goodin, OFM on 6/8/18 12:00 AM

As you can see, we have changed the name of our blog from American Catholic to Franciscan Spirit. We feel it better represents our mission: to spread the Gospel in the spirit of our founder, Saint Francis of Assisi. But what is the Franciscan spirit? 

"It's powerful, because it is profoundly human," Fr. Richard Goodin, OFM, says. "It's a quality that reaches inside the Catholic tradition and has great value outside that tradition."
