Dear Friends,

May the Lord give you peace!   The following is an exhortcreation11.jpgation to the friars from our Founder, Francis of Assisi:

“In that love which is God, I entreat all my friars, ministers and subjects, to put away every attachment, all care and solicitude, and serve, love, honour, and adore 

our Lord and God with a pure heart and mind;  this is what he seeks above all else.   We should make a dwelling place within ourselves where he can stay, he who is God almighty, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.”   (Rule of 1221, Ch XXII)

Are we attentive to what the Lord seeks?

God bless you,
