Meeting With Jesus InThe Gospel of MarkVolume 1The Galilean Ministry of theAnointed SonPublication date: February 2012Séamus Mulholland OFMISBN 978-0-9566568-3-4Price £14.95“To read Mark is to be on the edge of things, to be in the world’s dark places and to espy aglimmer of light at the end of a long tunnel. To embrace Mark’s vision is to become a realist, tosee the pain of humanity and to dare to hope that God will right what is wrong. Mark doesn’tdo easy piety or cheap grace. Séamus Mulholland presents a re-reading of our first Gospelwhich carries his readers through the story, explaining where explanations are necessary,enlightening hidden crannies, and illustrating what makes this little pamphlet not only a text ofterror but a divine gift of hope to all who are graced by its sacred pages.”5From the foreword by Joseph O Hanlon PhDMail order form to: Franciscan International Study CentreGiles Lane, Canterbury, Kent CT2 7NA ++44 (0) 1227 769349or order online at www.franciscanbooks.co.uk

11A BeautifulFragranceThe Story of Margaret SinclairPublication date: March 2012John WattsISBN 978-0-9566568-5-8Price £5.95“As Vice-Postulator of Margaret Sinclair‟s Cause for Beatification andeventual Canonisation I have great pleasure in commending to you thiswonderful little booklet. I have great respect for the scholarship of Dr JohnWatts who is a talented and well-researched author of several excellentworks of Scottish Catholic history. This extract from his larger work on thehistory of the Franciscans in Scotland is but one example.Dr Watts mentions in his text that both St Francis and St Clare andthe Little Flower, St Therese of Lisieux were great favourites of Margaret‟s;this is a fact that has often struck me also – indeed many of the circumstancesof Therese's life, while removed socially from Margaret‟s bymany degrees, nevertheless reveal a soul whose deliberate decision tolive an ordinary Christian life extraordinarily well, nonetheless show us thepossibility of living the call to Holiness which baptismal grace permits andpromotes is exemplified in Margaret Sinclair. “Monsignor Stephen RobsonMail order form to: Franciscan International Study CentreGiles Lane, Canterbury, Kent CT2 7NA ++44 (0) 1227 769349or order online at www.franciscanbooks.co.uk

With a captivating style, based on thoroughresearch. John Watts introduces us to the lived experience of Franciscan menand women in Scotland from the thirteenth century until our own times. Spiritual,pastoral, missionary and intellectual elements of the Franciscan charism in aScottish context come alive in the events and personalities that he describesand interprets.” Maurice Carmody OFM.“Much more than a history of the Franciscan family in Scotland, A TenderWatering also provides an overview of the development of Franciscan history,theology, spirituality and practice from the thirteenth century to the present. Thework is engagingly written, founded on archival sources, and filled withinteresting and provocative commentary on the interaction between the maleand female members of the family and the social and political forces of themedieval and modern worlds. The author‟s judgments are sound and subtle,communicating both a sensitive and critical portrait of the spiritual and socialvision of Francis of Assisi, its successes and failures in his followers. Requiredreading not only for those interested in Franciscan history but also for anyonecommitted to filling the ordinary dimensions of life with faith and joy”Joseph P.

Canterbury Studies inFranciscan HistoryVolume ThreePublication date - June 2011ISBN 978-0-9566568-0-3Price £11.9515What little is known of the first Rule was identified by Francis and brother Bernard whenthey consulted the gospel and found the passages from Matthew and Luke, probably inApril 1209. The Regula Prima of 1221, devised by Francis with the help of Caesar ofSpeyer and Peter Catani was short lived and there were pressures to adopt one of theexisting monastic rules. Francis made every effort to preserve his ideal with the help ofbrother Leo and brother Bonizzo. The final text was submitted to cardinal Ugolino whois thought to have revised the clauses before the official promulgation in the bull Soletannuere in 1223.The questions relating to the textual origins and history of the Franciscan Rule, itsauthorship and its links to the order's development in its first three decades onlyaddress one aspect of a much wider issue. While the textual history of the Rule ends in1223, the problem of its interpretation remained. According to Moorman this occurredat three levels, 'pontifical, magistral and individual'. The Regula bullata, thecommunity's central normative text, did not only provide guidance for individual friars,its interpretation also shaped the order's history. The Rule and its immediate contextdoes not represent the whole legislative achievement of the Franciscans, only that ofthe first order. Bert Roest's article in this volume reminds us of the long andcomplicated history of the Rule of St Clare and more generally of the different rulesmade for the second order. But even this is not the whole story. The reader will findsurveys of the order's development as well as more specialised and detailed studies,which demonstrate the importance of continued research into the Franciscan Rules.Mail order form to: Franciscan International Study CentreGiles Lane, Canterbury, Kent CT2 7NA ++44 (0) 1227 769349or order online at www.franciscanbooks.co.uk


16Franciscan Studiesin TheologyVolume OnePublication date: June 2009ISSN 2041-2347Price £11.95The Franciscan intellectual tradition is nearly as old as the Order itself and offersa rich variety of theological speculation that has enriched the Church since theexplosive advent of the Friars Minor in the thirteenth century and assuming freshrelevance in the questioning ethos of the modern and „post-modern‟ world oftoday. From the intuitive spirituality of seminal figures such as Francis and Clareof Assisi, and others who made up the first followers of the Poverello, to theintellectual endeavours of Bonaventure, Scotus, and other scholastics at Parisand Oxford, where the insights of the founders were systematized and enrichedwithout sacrificing integrity or originality, to subsequent generations ofFranciscans from the various branches of the far flung family; all contributed tothe weaving of an intricate and vibrantly coloured tapestry. Modern scholarshipmandates both a reflective reclamation, and creative reinterpretation of this longtradition and the Franciscan International Study Centre seeks to conserve anddevelop the intellectual tradition in a way harmonious with the earliestevangelical impulse of the Order; sharing the fruits of many generations‟ labourand, perhaps, contributing something new as well but, above all, adapting atimeless message to a very real time and place.Mail order form to: Franciscan International Study CentreGiles Lane, Canterbury, Kent CT2 7NA ++44 (0) 1227 769349or order online at www.franciscanbooks.co.uk
