  • World Youth Day / Krakow

    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. Francis himself manifested this dynamism when he writes in his Testament that the Lord led his heart so he could go among the lepers, giving and receiving mercy (Cf. Test 2-3).
    In this direction, inspired by St. Francis, we want to make a triple invitation to young people around the world, and so we invite you to participate in this upcoming World Youth Day.

  • Common Franciscan Initiative for the Environment

    The Church calls all Christians to be responsible stewards of the environment, and this is even more of a pressing demand for brothers and sisters of St. Francis. In this year when we observe the 35th anniversary of Pope John Paul II’s naming of St. Francis of Assisi as patron of those who are concerned for the environment (November 29, 1979). Franciscans are asked to give special attention to our sister Mother Earth.

    For this occasion the International Franciscan Commission for Justice and Peace, also known as Roman 6 – representative of the three branches of the First Order, of the Secular Franciscan Order, of the Friars of the Third Order Regular and of the International Franciscan Conference of the Brothers and Sisters of the Third Order Regular (IFC-TOR) – have prepared a reflection on the topic. Beginning on the World Day of Water, March 22, this reflection along with materials in diverse language for celebrating in prayer and ritual, can be found at the new website : http://www.francis35.org
