Although there are several studies dedicated to the lives of Francis and Clare of Assisi, Gilberto Cavazos-González’s Greater Than a Mother’s Love is the first to investigate their spirituality in the context of family relationships. He delves into the writings of Francis and Clare and illustrates how both used observations of their various human relationships to understand their experiences with God and neighbor. He then moves to a re-appropriation of the kinship spirituality of Francis and Clare for today. Accompanying this study is an exhaustive bibliography and several appendices that enhance this unique treatment of these two beloved and admired religious figures.

First, I would like to squelch any rumors about my having to borrow a Capuchin habit for today's event.  Yes, this is my solemn profession habit from 1972; it is admittedly in pristine condition, and although not quite saving it for this moment, I did want to be part of the brown wave that ripples across CTU today; furthermore, since the religious barb of the mendicants was both a choir robe as well as at the origin of the academic gown, it seems fitting in this conjunction of prayer and scholarship to don the capuche.

Most North American Christians have lost such intimacy with the created world. We are not able to immediately recognize creation as God’s self-revelation complementing familiar biblical witnesses to God’s grandeur. In fact, we have come close to obliterating much of the natural world, marring it to the extent that it can barely eke out a mere whimper in praise of God’s glory rather than a “shout of joy.”
