What Fr. David Couturier has to Say
David Couturier, OFM Cap. is the Dean of the School of Franciscan Studies at St. Bonaventure University. He gave a presentation recently entitled, “DACA and the Deportation of DREAMers: A Franciscan Ethical Perspective” which we offer for download it its entirety, here.
The presentation starts off with the fundamentals of DACA, offers a moral analysis of the Catholic Bishops’ responses and even goes in to a biblical dimension before digging in to St. Francis and the values of inclusion in this moment.
We encourage you to take some time to read and reflect on this astute analysis.
