Francis and the Foolishness of God: Podcast Series, Episode 1

Our FMS podcasts bring the missioner formation classroom right into your home.  Our presenters speak on a number of topics including church history, Franciscan spirituality, simplicity, and social justice issues.

Our latest podcasts focus on Fr. Joe Nangle’s book, “St. Francis and the Foolishness of God.”  Fr. Nangle takes listeners through the thought process behind the book and the themes discussed in it’s pages.  Reflect on how a man who lived over seven-hundred years ago can still relate to our live today.

In this episode Fr. Nangle talks about the life of Francis and the motivation for writing the brook.  Even if you haven’t read the book, his storytelling and examples are sure to bring insight to our times from a Franciscan’s point of view.
