Transitus & The Feast of Our Holy Father Saint Francis

Death and Ascension of St. Francis
“Death and Ascension of St. Francis” by GIOTTO di Bondone (1300)

 This evening we attended a Transitus Service celebrating the death of our Holy Father Saint Francis. It was a time to reflect both on his life and his death culminating in the veneration of a relic of St. Francis by Monsignor Oberch (our Chaplain), and all of us Sisters. What a rich heritage we have, both as Franciscans & in our community. God is SO good to us!

Tomorrow we will leave bright and early to be back at the Motherhouse at 7am for Morning Prayer, Holy Mass, Breakfast, etc. We’ll get together again to celebrate our holy fathers’ life & be renewed by our celebrating of the Liturgy and in fraternal charity. 

Happy Feast day to all our fellow Franciscans!

God’s abundant blessings on all who will read this!

In Christ and St. Francis, Sister M. Veronica, OSF
