The Fraternity Gathering is a place where we learn
to let go of “me” to experience the beauty of “we.”

THE WAY OF LIFE IN FRATERNITY by Mary Anne Lenzi, OFS

 

Please review: Fraternity as Fundamental  Element – 3-23-2011 in FUN Formation Manual

Pray the Rosary (MP3 files) and the Franciscan Crown (link)

 

827 "Christ, 'holy, innocent, and undefiled,' knew nothing of sin, but came only to expiate the sins of the people. The Church, however, clasping sinners to her bosom, at once holy and always in need of purification, follows constantly the path of penance and renewal." 299 All members of the Church, including her ministers, must acknowledge that they are sinners. 300 In everyone, the weeds of sin will still be mixed with the good wheat of the Gospel until the end of time. 301 Hence the Church gathers sinners already caught up in Christ's salvation but still on the way to holiness:(Catechism of the Catholic Church) [Emphasis mine, FS]


Let us all do penance for our sins and those of the whole world.
