800th Anniversary of the Approval of the Franciscan Rule

April 17, 2009

Thursday, April 16th marked 800 years since the approval of the Franciscan Rule by Pope Innocent III. The professed Sisters made a two day retreat prior to renewing their vows during Holy Mass that morning. I regret we don’t have any pictures of it. Needless to say it was a very special and grace-filled day for all of us.

    Dear Sr. Veronica,

    Congratulations and Blessings to all of the sisters! What a wonderful occasion, especially having it fall in the Easter Octave.

    Hello Eileen,

    Thank you for the warm wishes. I agree that it is truly a grace to have it fall within the Octave. We couldn’t be happier to be Francis’ spiritual children 🙂

    Our Holy Father St. Francis, pray for us!
