Book Suggestion and New Feature
Sr. Ilia Delio, O.S.F. has graced us with a number of good books on Franciscan spirituality and Saint Bonaventure. Recent I read Franciscan Prayer and found it very insightful. She answers the basic question: Is there such a thing as Franciscan prayer? And if there is, what are the specifics about this type of prayer that makes it peculiarly Franciscan? The book has a 2004 Copyright and is published by Saint Anthony Messenger Press.
All of Sister Ilia's books, and many more concerning Franciscanism and Franciscan Spirituality, can be found at St Francis Bookshop (www.stfrancisonline.com)
NEW FEATURE Down-loadable PDF files are very popular. So, in an attempt to make articles, newsletters, etc., from the Vocation Office more accessible, I will be attaching periodically files in pdf format on this Blog. The first is an article concerning our college option at Xavier University here in Cincinnati. The option is an alternative for those men who want to join our community and, for whatever reason, are seeking college credit or a degree as well. Download xavier_program.pdf
