Remembering the Franciscan Spirit: the Value of Stewardship

By Treasure Ransom, @transom

The Mayo Clinic Values Council invites you to remember that the spiritual roots of our Mayo founders, Dr. W.W. Mayo and Mother Alfred Moes, OSF are as relevant and important as ever to the care our patients receive.  Today the Mayo/Franciscan Values thrive in an environment that recognizes that spirituality is an integral dimension of compassionate care and healing.

Stewardship:  Sustain and re-invest in our mission and extended communities by wisely managing our human, natural and material resources.

"Although earth damage in the thirteenth century was not nearly as extensive as it is now, it affected Francis' sympathetic heart.  In the story describing the origins of the 'Canticle of Creatures', Francis speaks these words:  'I want to compose a new Praise of the Lord in his creatures for we daily make use of them, and cannot live without them.'"

∼ “Care of Creation:  Working with the United Nations” by Margaret Pirkl, OSF

 

"Human beings can alter nature and exhaust natural resources by their action or its consequences and, therefore, must fully recognize the urgency of maintaining the stability and quality of nature and of conserving natural resources."

∼ World Charter for Nature, promulgated in 1982 by the UN General Assembly
