Vagrant: “A person without a settled home or regular work who wanders from place to place and lives by begging”.
You’re probably wondering what that has to do with Catholicism. When you consider that the word “mendicant” comes from the Latin term “begging” and arguably the most famous mendicants is Saint Francis of Assisi, things become more clear.
My love for Francis of Assisi is something I’m not shy about. The Franciscan way of life has dominated my spiritual walk and has played a key role in forming my faith. Seeing how Francis and other Franciscans (like Bonaventure, Duns Scotus) handled things, I began realizing my thought process was similar.
As a Catholic who follows the ways of the mendicant fathers, the Vagrant Catholic is a devoted husband and father. He enjoys writing, reading, a hodgepodge of other things, and apparently occasionally writing in the third-person.
God bless, and enjoy reading.
