What factors in civic and church circles created the stage upon which St. Francis shared his message with the world?
Sr Margaret Carney is a member of the Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities. She is President Emerita of St. Bonaventure University and has lectured widely on Franciscan history and spirituality. Her own research concentrates on early Franciscan lay penitents and Franciscan women. She has served in various positions within the Franciscan academic world and also seeks opportunities to open the riches of Franciscan legacy with today’s seekers after a life of spiritual depth and social concern. Last year she received the Monika Hellwig Award of the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities for her contributions to Catholic intellectual life.
