St. Francis’ views on religious life, as explained in a previous article in this journal, had its  foundations in a well-founded theology of compassionate ministry. This origin of all compassion according to St. Francis  is God himself. In this article St. Francis’ significance for the church also in  South Africa is discussed in detail. It  is
