In his call for the church to go the margins and the
peripheries-both geographical and existential-Pope Francis has
defined a new understanding of the mission of the church. But in
doing so, he has reached back to the origins of the church, and
revived a long and complex theme in Christian history. In To the
Margins, the founder of the San'Egidio community in Rome offers a
profound reflection on this theme, tracing the many ways Christians
have opted for the marginalised and excluded, from the early
ministry of the church, to the program of St. Francis, the Worker
Priests in France, and the witness of modern figures like Bl.
Charles de Foucauld, Mother Maria Skobtsova, and the work of
San'Egidio itself. By understanding the many forms of the "margins"
and the "marginalised" in our time, we can understand and pursue
the mission of the church today.
