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.

Medicine is a genuine ministry. All one need to do is to read the Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles to know that the ministry of Jesus and his early disciples was a ministry of preaching and healing.  Similarly, St. Francis of Assisi and the early friars preached in city squares and cared for lepers.  Yet, while much has been written about the spirituality of patients coping with illness, little attention has been paid to the spirituality of being a health care professional.

I am the oldest of five children. My siblings, their families, and I all remain active in the "practice" of our Catholic faith. Of my eleven cousins on my mother's side all but two also remain active in the "practice" of the Catholic faith. We are also all active members of our parish communities. How unusual is this in our world today? VERY.
