The San Luis Rey Fraternity prays the Little Office of St. Francis in community as a regular part of our monthly gatherings. Our version of this beautiful prayer comes from a devotional office (Little Office of the Passion) composed by St. Francis of Assisi himself. It is a supplement to the Liturgy of the Hours. The Little Office is provided below to be happily shared with our brothers and sisters of the broader Franciscan community:

As Jesus was the true worshiper of the Father,
so let prayer and contemplation
be the soul of all they are and do.
Let them participate in the
sacramental life of the Church,
above all in the Eucharist.
Let them join in liturgical prayer
in one of the forms proposed by the Church,
reliving the mysteries
of the life of Christ.
