Franciscan Vision Certificate Program
Divine Abundance and the Franciscan Vision
Fr. Garrett Galvin, OFM

*Please note, specific times may change. 

Divine Abundance and the Franciscan Vision Divine abundance is fundamentally grounded in creation theology, which is often compromised in humans who can only see scarcity (e.g. The Prodigal Son (Luke 15) Laborers in the Vineyard Mt 20)). Divine abundance is expressed in two ways that are particularly relevant to the gospel: importance of table fellowship and importance of hospitality to strangers.
