Franciscan Resource Book

In 1999 the Office of Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) of the Order of Friars Minor made available a resource book to help Franciscans become more conscious of the fact that the Franciscan commitment to JPIC is an integral part of Franciscan Spirituality. The book has articles on Franciscan Spirituality, on the Franciscan option for the poor, on encouragement for prayer and mediation, on dialogue in common about values and bases of the Franciscan vocation, on incarnated action in concrete situations in the light of Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation. The book is available on-line
