Hey guys! We had a good week for feast days this week. Among them
where the feasts of Sts. Francis and Bruno. St. Francis founded the
Franciscans, and St. Bruno founded the Carthusians. I have a few
Carthusain links below, and the rest are Franciscan communities.
Enjoy.:-)

In Christ,

Veronica:-)

CARTHUSIANS
A letter from Saint Bruno to the Carthusians...
~
Rejoice, my dearest brothers, because you are blessed and because of
the bountiful hand of God's grace upon you. Rejoice, because you have
escaped the various dangers and shipwrecks of the stormy world.
Rejoice because you have reached the quiet and safe anchorage of a
secret harbor. Many wish to come into this port, and many make great
efforts to do so, yet do not achieve it. Indeed many, after reaching
it, have been thrust out, since it was not granted them from above.

By your work you show what you love and what you know. When you
observe true obedience with prudence and enthusiasm, it is clear that
you wisely pick the most delightful and nourishing fruit of divine
Scripture.

Quotes of St. Francis of Assisi
~
Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly
you are doing the impossible.
~
Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words.
~
No one is to be called an enemy, all are your benefactors, and no one
does you harm. You have no enemy except yourselves.
~
It is not fitting, when one is in God's service, to have a gloomy face
or a chilling look.
~
It is no use walking anywhere to preach unless our walking is our preaching.
~
Sanctify yourself and you will sanctify society.
