Could you be part of this dream?friars_minor.jpg

The first followers came as a result of witnessing Francis’s own marriage to Lady Poverty.   There would be more and more that would follow during his own life and to this day.   One night in a dream Francis saw them all:
“A great multitude of men…their footfalls still resound in my ears as they come and go according to the commands of holy obedience.   The highroads are crowded with them, coming to this place (Assisi), from almost every nation.   There are Frenchmen coming, Spaniards hurrying, Germans and Englishmen running, and a tremendous throng speaking various other tongues hasten there.”
