la pastorale francescana nel dibattito contemporaneo
This book was born from the belief that conversion, the change of life that leads to the gift of oneself to the other from oneself, cannot be dissociated from an intellectual conversion. Nobody comes into the world by himself: each of us comes after; first comes the other, thanks to which I exist. The nourishment of the soul is therefore not self-love, but the love of the other; this is why knowledge is originally re-knowledge, a fundamental act of Franciscan ethics. This is the precious pearl that constitutes the heart of Franciscan pastoral care: we and the world are the fruit of a divine gesture of freedom. Freedom is the secret of the world we dream of but which we find it hard to give birth to. Stubborn courage is needed to cultivate dreams that can match the One for whom everything is possible.
