The term is usually applied to members who also adhere to the Roman Catholic Church. However, other denominations also have members who describe themselves as Franciscans. They include Old Catholic, Anglican, and Lutheran. The most prominent group is the Order of Friars Minor, commonly called simply the “Franciscans”. They seek to follow most directly the manner of life that Saint Francis led. This Order is a mendicant religious order of men tracing their origin to Francis of Assisi. It comprises three separate groups, each considered a religious order in its own right. These are the Observants, most commonly simply called “Franciscan friars”, the Capuchins, and the Conventual Franciscans. They all live according to a body of regulations known as “The Rule of St. Francis”. The coat of arms that is a universal symbol of Franciscans “contains the Tau cross, with two crossed arms: Christ’s right hand with the nail wound and Francis’ left hand with the stigmata wound” Powered by eBay Turbo ListerThe free listing tool.
