Are you looking for a community with a contemplative heart and depth of spiritual yearning?
St Francis had a vision for the modern age to pursue justice, peace and loving care of creation.
A son of a rich merchant, a playboy, a soldier, a prisoner of war all of these and then life changed. Francis had a call from God to ‘rebuild his church’. Francis forsook his previous life and lived instead a life dedicated to God. Read more….. Other heard his message and came to join him. This was the very beginning of the Franciscan Orders.
The San Damiano Cross you see on the left was hanging in the church where he heard the call. It now hangs in the Bascilica of the poor Clares in Assisi.

Day Twenty Four — The First Note (continued)
The faults that we see in others are the subject of prayer rather than of criticism. We take care to cast out the beam from our own eye before offering to remove the speck from another’s. We are ready to accept the lowest place when asked, and to volunteer to take it. Nevertheless, when asked to undertake work of which we feel unworthy or incapable, we do not shrink from it on the grounds of humility, but confidently attempt it through the power that is made perfect in weakness.
