Known As:
Franciscans Of Mary

Mission Statement:
The mission of Franciscanos de María is to personally experience and spread the spirituality of gratitude, helping others understand that that is the core of the Gospel, that which God expects and has the right to find in the heart of Christians. This personal experience and spreading of the spirituality of gratitude comes about by imitating the Holy Virgin and St. Francis of Assisi: Imitating Mary in her availability, her divine maternity by practicing unity and in serving Christ crucified; imitating St. Francis in his poverty, his grateful love of God and his complete fidelity to the Church and, especially, to the Pope.
