Comment and Critique of Friars in Assisi
Peter writes--with a comment re the Friars in Assisi:
Loved visiting Assisi. Lifelong dream but someone needs to tell the Franciscans there to lighten up. did not see one of them smile or laugh in public. not the way I read of St. Francis. they do a beautiful job of caring for his memory but he seemed like a pretty funny guy who would have laughed at men yelling "Silencio" all the time. Giving a blessing to a tour group passing by might be a nice habit to get into. Otherwise terrific place.
