Much new information has been surfacing in Franciscan research and study.
And there are some periodicals which print articles and monographs on these
Franciscan topics. The following periodicals would be helpful for informing
all Franciscans about the latest research and study. They would be basic for
our libraries, especially those of our formation units.

popular articles on solid topics written by students/graduates of the
