During the Summer of 2007CrystalCove11_0031.jpg

the Minister General of our order, Br. Jose Rodriguez Carballo, ofm addressed the ‘Young Friars’, men solemnly professed within the past ten years at a gathering in the Holy Land.   In one part of his address he spoke of the importance of prayer.   Friar Jose told them that:  “Our life and mission cannot be fruitful without a daily encounter with the Lord, without our heart being constantly turned to Him, without prolonged moments of silent conversation with Him, by whom we are loved, called and sent.   Praying insistently (cf Lk 22: 40),…is the secret to an authentic and fruitful religious and Franciscan life, where the beauty of following Jesus Christ is discovered.”
