Faith and Franciscanism

  • God is calling everybody, every day.

    In an age of complexity, simplicity of the message of St. Francis of Assisi has more appeal than ever before: Humility. Generosity. Reverence. Service. Respect. Prayer. Joy. Love. These guiding principles of the Franciscans aren't just ideals to be admired, but values to be lived.
