Letter from the General Ministers of the First Order and the Third Order Regular on the 750th Anniversary of the Death of St. Bonaventure

The 750th anniversary of the death of the Seraphic Doctor (d. July 15, 1274), gives us an opportunity not only to remember and celebrate the service he rendered to the Order and the entire Church, but also to repropose him as a gift that is still valid for our time.

During his visit at the 1974 international conference celebrating the 700th anniversary, Pope Paul VI recommended St. Bonaventure “to all the children of the Church … so that, by careful meditation on his message, they may become an effective witness in the Church and in the world.”
