Fr. Mark Soehner to give Year of Mercy talk

Celebrating Pope Francis’ Jubilee Year of Mercy
~

Mercy is very dear to Franciscans, in fact in some ways, it is our vocation.  An early life of St. Francis, called the Legend of the Three Companions, described our way of life this way:

This is our vocation:  to heal wounds, to bind what is broken, to bring home those who are lost. In other words to be merciful.

We friars thank you for your many expressions of kindness and mercy toward us, and we pray that this year will be a time when you come to know once again the mercy of God.  We thank you for helping us proclaim this great gift, and to continue healing, binding wounds, and welcoming people home.  May God give you peace!

Fr. Mark Soehner, OFM, concludes our series.
