Two sessions animated by me on "Accompaniment and Franciscan Leadership"

 WHO ARE THE LIVING LEADERS?
A ture servant leader
Strong in spirit and faith
Collaborative
Informed
Open to learning
Communicative
Compassionate and fair
Commitment to the growth of others
Ethical worldview
Empowerment

 Friars listen.....with attention.....trying to find out which qualities they would like to possess....

 PEOPLE, HUNGRY FOR THE SPIRIT OF FRANCIS AND CLARE, ARE SEARCHING FOR WAYS TO IMMERSE THEMSELVES IN AND EXPRESS THE FRANCISCAN VALUES OF EVANGELICAL CONVERSION OF LIFE, PRAYERS, POVERTY AND HUMILITY, OUR RECONFIGURATION AS AN ORGANIZATION IS TO ENABLE US TO ENGAGE WITH EACH OTHER AND OUR ASSOCIATES AND CO-WORKERS IN NEW WAYS TO LIVE THOSE VALUES IN OUR WORLD TODAY

Happy Feast of Immaculate BVM - Fifth Day of Seminar for formators

 Br. Charles celebrated the Holy Eucharist....preached a meaningful homily




 Dearest Mother my Queen, I gaze upon the beauty and holiness of you who, though a mere creature, are perfect in every way. You have been granted this singular and gratuitous grace from God with which you perfectly cooperated. May I always rely upon your motherly love and care and may I always allow you to bestow the grace of God upon me in accord with the Father’s plan. You, dearest mother, are a gratuitous gift of Mercy to us all! Mother Mary, I love you. Pray for me. Jesus, I trust in You.
