Description:
The primary task of the Franciscans in Merchants' Quay is Evangelization. That means living and proclaiming the Gospel. The Gospel must be lived and proclaimed in the world in which we find ourselves. We are trying to read the signs of the times, to be in touch with the reality around us. We have invited a merchants' quay project social researcher, Dr. Kieran Me Keown, to evaluate our work and help us to draw up action plans for the future. He and his colleagues have produced three reports which are thorough, penetrating and challenging. The Franciscans have been noted for their historical research; the work of the Four Masters is unrivalled as a document of history. 1be Kieran Me Keown reports offer us another way of writing history; the present is history in the making. The Reports give us a comprehensive picture of some of the work of the Franciscans in Merchants' Quay in the 1990s, but they also tell us a great deal about the social realities of Dublin's inner city. These reports are offered to all who are interested in the struggles of a religious community to be faithful to their founding charism and to the reality of today's world. These reports will have relevance to voluntary and statutory bodies engaged in work with the homeless, the socially disadvantaged, with drug users and those who are affected by HIV. We offer these reports to all who are concerned with social justice in Dublin and Ireland today
