Franciscan Examination of Consciousness

A sixfold reflection to meditate on Franciscan vocation:

Three knots- interpersonal ‎
Poverty- how do I find right relations with things?
Chastity- how do I find right relations with my body and respect the sacredness of others bodies?
Obedience – how do I find right relations with God and the new family God gives me?‎

Three knots- communal/missional
Justice-how am I called to promote right relations with things and  among my neighbors?‎
Peace- how am I called to promote right ‎relations between my neighbors?
Integrity of Creation- how am I called to promote the human vocation of earthkeeping and reflecting the love of God to the creation?
