We join in giving thanks for the 30th anniversary celebration of Franciscans International!



Sing to the Lord a new song +
because He has worked wonders (Ps 97:1a-b).
He has sacrificed His Beloved Son with his right hand +
and holy (is) His arm (Ps 97:1c-d).

The Lord has made known His salvation +
in the sight of the nations He has
revealed His justice (Ps 97:2).

On that day the Lord commanded His mercy +
and at night His song (Ps 41:9a-b).
This is the day, which the Lord has made +
let us exult and be glad in it (Ps 117:24).

(St. Francis of Assisi: Officium Pas Domini, Psalm IX.)

We wish you a
blessed Holy Easter
filled with the grace of the risen Christ!
