The Franciscans make the normal vows of most religious orders:poverty, chastity, and obedience. A Conventual Franciscan explainsthe vows: from the Conventual Franciscan website: . Written by Conventual Franciscans on 10 July 2011.Posted in Our Vows St. Francis never envisioned a community held together by acloister or monastery walls. He and his friars were called toproclaim the Gospel to the ends of the earth. In imitation of Jesusand his disciples, St. Francis sent his friars out to preach andproclaim the good news, not always with words but always byexample. The evangelical vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, which flowfrom and intensify our baptismal call to holiness, serve to bindthe friars together in a common way of life. It is this vowedrelationship to God and one another that allows the friars toembrace the world as their cloister and serves to bind themtogether in a fraternal relationship and way of life. Our vow of poverty calls us, in an age of unbridled materialism andconsumerism, to focus on putting not things, but people and theneeds of others, especially the poor, before all else. The vow ofpoverty impacts not only those material things we may use in ourlives but also any attachment that might result from such use, allfor the sake the kingdom. All the baptized are called to the virtue of chastity, that is, anappropriate expression of our gift of sexuality according to ourstate in life: whether married, single, or religious life and HolyOrders. Our vow of consecrated chastity as Franciscan Friarsdirects our energy and focus on the Lord and the people of God weare called to serve. Rather than forming exclusive relationships weopen ourselves to be instruments of God's love to all. Our vow of obedience is rooted in our desire and call to do not ourwill, but God's will. Whether a Franciscan priest or brother, weplace our lives at the service of something greater than ourselvesin dedicating our lives to proclamation of the Good News of Jesus.In living out our vow of obedience we humbly assent to the factthat no one person has all the answers, and we listen to thecollective wisdom of others and our conscience, in discerning God'swill for us..
