RS 575 Overview
This course addresses the Franciscan value of “showing compassion.” The Franciscan tradition teaching on compassion draws from Jesus’ ministry of compassion as exemplified in the Gospels and finds its embodiment in the communal life and ministry of the first followers of Francis and Clare. Students will explore the relevance of this tradition and its practices for pastoral leaders in today’s church and world. The practical and discussion-oriented format of the seminar integrates theological issues with pastoral issues and ecumenical concerns and provides community networking opportunities and effective resources for ministry.
