Dear sisters and brothers,
May the Lord give you peace!
In his Admonition VI, St. Francis reminds us that it is not enough merely to talk about saints. He suggests that we are called to be saints ourselves.
Our call to holiness/sainthood will be the topic of our November meeting. We'll spend a bit of time looking at some Franciscan saints who might be new to us, and we'll reflect on how we are called to act. We'll discuss work done at Brother Benno's and by Catholic Charities as we continue to discern - as individuals and as fraternity - what is ours to do.
Pax et bonum, dear servants of God.
