Hope is bold! – The language of Christmas is full of music and light
Two important events are marked during 2016: the anniversary of the date tradionally associated with the granting of the Portiuncula Indulgence and the celebration of the Jubilee of Mercy, inspired by the Pope who bears St. Francis’ name.
Dear young Franciscans all over the world! Our Seraphic Brother Saint Francis showed himself to be a true lover of God’s mercy. Finding himself deeply loved by the “Father of Mercies” (Cf. 2 COR 1.3) while still in his youth, the poor man of Assisi allowed this virtue to embrace his life and become in him availability, movement and liberation.
The Ministers General of the Franciscan Family offer their joy and thanks for publication of Pope Francis’ Encyclical “Laudato sì, on care for our common home.” In the letter Saint Francis is cited twelve times, making him the key to reading the entire text…
We, the Ministers of the Conference of the Franciscan Family (CFF), wrote to you regarding the financial situation of Franciscans International (FI), and asking for your assistance. It is with joy that we write once again, this time with good news about the organization and its work.
For more than a year the Conference of the Franciscan Family (CFF) has been discussing how we might commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the
World Day of Prayer for Peace, which was held in Assisi on October 27, 1986.
