Abstract: This paper examines the economic sustainability of the Franciscan family, trying to identify the values that should inspire the friars’ decisions in this realm, so that they can be faithful to their charism and mission.  The analysis focuses on the friars of the first Order (OFM, OFMcap, OFMconv).The first part of the paper presents some of the current social challenges that compel the Franciscans to review their economic sustainability. The second part studies how to illuminate the current situation in the light of the Franciscan charism. The third part indicates some guidelines to put into practice the economic dimension of Franciscan life.

Key words: Franciscans, Economy, Sustainability, Religious life, Charism
