…Then & Now
“Give us this day: in remembrance, understanding, and reverence…”
–St. Francis of Assisi, Prayer Inspired by the Our Father
Conventuals announce the startling Christian message that Christ is incarnate amidst every cultural milieu, in every time and space. Across the centuries, we have been instrumental in rebuilding, fostering, and indicating the redemptive presence of Christ in every human society. Franciscan spirituality incorporates a capacity for recognizing the true, the good, and the beautiful, even in places that appear mired in error, evil, and ugliness.
