      Dear Sisters and Brothers,               May ~ June, 2011         
            The rejoicing and shining hope of this Easter and Pentecost season challenges all Christians and followers of Francis and Clare to share the Gospel message — to make known to people, cultures and nations God’s outpouring of mercy, presence and forgiveness. Through Baptism, God invites us to share the gift of our lives in service to others. To do so we must be aware of our daily encounters with the gifts of God’s infinite love and our humble service to Him and our brothers and sisters in the spirit of Francis.  May we be strengthened against evil that we may rejoice in God’s peace and trust in His eternal promise. Those who welcome and cherish the Word as guest of their hearts will have abiding joy. “Thank God for all the blessings he has bestowed on you so that you may be worthy to receive greater ones.”              St Louis 1X
      “May you attain full knowledge of God’s will through perfect wisdom and   spiritual insight. Then you will lead a life worthy of the Lord and pleasing to Him in every way. You will multiply good works of every sort and grow in knowledge of God. By the might of His glory you will be endowed with the strength needed to stand fast, even to endure joyfully whatever may come.”
                                                                             Col. 1, 9b-11
      Francis’ Office of the Passion speaks to us: “Holy Virgin Mary, there is no one like you among women. Daughter and handmaid of the Most High Supreme King and Father in heaven, mother of our Most Holy Lord Jesus Christ, spouse of the Holy Spirit pray for us.”
      Friar Louis Geelan, O.F.M.
                                      Questions for personal reflection and group discussion:
      1.      What have I honestly done for Christ during my Franciscan life’s journey? Can our Christian heritage be expressed in a variety of ways?
      2.      How is the Holy Spirit inspiring me to serve the risen Christ now in this period of my life?
                      There are two things to do about the Gospel — believe it and behave it. 
                       S. Wesley
