ABSTRACT
This article, the second part of a study of "Problems and Perspectives on Today's Christian and Franciscan Mission in the Western World," sets forth the specificity of Franciscan mission in the context of the Western world as an original contribution to the mission of the Church. The principal characteristics of Franciscan mission are: Christological emphasis as conversion to Jesus Christ and restructuring the entire Christian life around Him; fraternal communion as sign of the Kingdom and the first and fundamental mission; witness of the Gospel way of life as an expression of "minoritas" pervaded by a vivid and contagious joy that flows from gratitude and is expressed in the giving of oneself freely and happily.
