Friar Don Miller. OFM
I am a Franciscan priest. I spent my early years of ministry in New Mexico working among the Pueblo Native Americans and the Hispanics. In 1978 I began my years in academics working as a chaplain, faculty member, and administrator at various universities in the southwest and the midwest. I taught various course in theology, especially in my area of specialty which is moral theology. I have been the Vocation Director for the Province of Saint John the Baptist since 2003.

Blog has International Connection

AustraliaOne of the neat aspects of blogging is the fact that you can connect with people throughout the world. And most of the time you don't even know it. But I look at other's blogs and they look at mine--and sometimes you connect in a personal way.

This morning I was going through my email and I came across a note from a Franciscan Postulant in Australia. He gave me permission to post it.

Dear Fr Don

I am a postulant in the Holy Spirit Province (Australia, New Zealand, Singapore)

I would be interested in finding out about any blogs of franciscans in formation (postulants, novices,the temporary professed) sharing their experiences.

I want to also thank you for your vocation blog.

It helped me in discernment prior to entering the postulancy year.

Peace and Good

Wow, my Blog from here in Cincinnati, OH, USA helped a young man with his vocational discernment in Australia. Now that, in my mind, points to the oneness of the Church as well as the Franciscan Order. We are brothers all, we just happen to live in different times and places.

Fr. Don,
It is interesting indeed how the Holy Spirit works in our lives. I was just talking the other day with my dad about just such a thing. I think as a postulant for the coming year with the St. John the Baptist Province it would be a good thing and I would be more than happy to contact Joe Mckay and share experiences. Perhaps we together could start a postulants blog? Just an idea.
God's Peace to you... Kevin Janke
