Canticle Cafe

The Canticle Cafe is an apostolate of our fraternity, in conjunction with

Franciscan Ministries, that offers not only meals and grocery items, but

also some socialization and companionship to our less fortunate brothers

and sisters. Before we serve the hot meal, we have the opportunity to sit

with our brothers and sisters as they share with us and each other some of

the ‘news of the street’.

We stand with them, as they pray….thanking God for the physical nutrition that is to

come…and ask for the ‘spiritual nutrition’ that is needed to meet the demands placed

on them in their way of life.

Not only do we serve them, but they serve us……they give to us the unique

opportunity to share in and better understand their way of life and the demands

it places on them.

Transits of St. Francis

Transits of St. Francis

“On the eve of his death, the saint, in imitation of his Divine Master, had bread brought to him and broken. This he distributed among those present, blessing Bernard of Quintaville, his first companion, Elias, his vicar, and all the others in order. “I have done my part,” he said next, “may Christ teach you to do yours.” Then wishing to give a last token of detachment and to show he no longer had anything in common with the world, Francis removed his poor habit and lay down on the bare ground, covered with a borrowed cloth, rejoicing that he was able to keep faith with his Lady Poverty to the end. After a while he asked to have read to him the Passion according to St. John, and then in faltering tones he himself intoned Psalm cxli. At the concluding verse, ‘Bring my soul out of prison’, Francis was led away from earth by ‘Sister Death’, in whose praise he had shortly before added a new strophe to his ‘Canticle of the Sun’.“
