    "Pilgrimage as a lifestyle is resurfacing within the Order; it is a penitential and radical way of completely relying upon the grace of God."

    “When all the basic necessities of life are stripped away, one begins to see oneself, others and God in a different perspective, either positive or negative.”

    "As a friar for over 25 years, I have always dreamed about doing something like this. I thank God for these young friars and their passion – it’s contagious!"

    “It seemed important [for me] as a formation director to accompany the deep desire of our younger friars to live out our charism in this way. For me personally, it will be a way to walk with Christ.”

I just learned about this wonderful Franciscan witness a few days ago. These friars have shown the world that, after 800 years, St. Francis' rule of life is still liveable. One comment in the Washington Post read, "The world needs more Franciscans." The seeds of many homilies are in this story. May God bless these young friars, and their formation directors, as they continue their Franciscan path.

Enjoyed our conversation. Easily the best moments I had all day. Wish you guys well. Keep in touch.
