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.

Commenting on the fact that we have men meeting with the Admissions Board and seeking admission to our Order, paxman wrote:

Fine men today wanting to embark on Francis' journey - as counter-cultural now as it was in his time - are signs that Hope continues indeed to be with us... from one generation to another.

Great and inspiring videos. Really well done. This just shows the beauty and grace that can come from community life, and the Franciscans. Congrats to all of the men in intial formation! I am a perspective postulant for the fall. God Bless all of the past, present, and future Franciscans in this wonderful province.


Greetings and Peace!

The videos were superb. I think Michael's honesty and candid responses were grace-filled. No spin, no "canned" answers, just the heart-felt journey of what it takes to follow the Lord in the way of Francis. The struggle and tensions of following the Lord are very real; I am edified by Michael's articulation of the struggle and the grace. Mostly, the peace and joy that is evident in Michael's eyes and face as he talks about his life reveals more than anything said. Maybe that's what Francis meant when he said "only if necessary use words." For sure, words were necessary. More deeply, though, was communicated something beyond words. Thanks to you Fr. Don, thanks to Friar Michael and thanks to God's grace which is doing great things for your Province!
