Dear Friends,

May the Lord give you peace!   Today many young people are coming to know Jesus through reading and reflecting on the Gospels.   Francis of Assisi a radical youth born in 1181 into a very materialistic, confused world not unlike our own, made the Gospels his ‘plan for action’.  

The ‘Franciscan Way’ is the ‘Gospel Way’ and Francis asks us, his brothers, to take the Gospel seriously.

If you want a challenging life, I recommend the ‘Franciscan Way of Life’.   The Rule of Life of the Friars Minor (the Franciscans) is this: “to observe the Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ.”

Would you like to make the Gospel of Jesus Christ your ‘plan of action’?????

If you think you might be up to this radical challenge, and I’ve no doubt but many of you reading this are, then please do not hesitate to contact me at    

Assuring you of my prayers as you continue on your discernment journey.

Many blessings,
