A Franciscan Weekend in the Fort
With only 11 days until the 2015 parliament of the World's Religions it seems appropriate that I end a year of preparation immersed in Franciscan events. in preparing for the parliament and in working to get the word out I have attended events in Sikh, Buddhist, Muslim and Christian Houses of Worship. I have attended interfaith celebrations and interfaith vigils marking tragedies. it seemed very appropriate that this weekend I attend a conference on the faith and ecology of a pope influenced by the example of St. Francis. I also attend a Transitus service, a Mass in observation of the Feast of St. Francis and a reception. I feel fortified in my Catholic-Franciscan values as I prepare to go to Salt lake City to meet and celebrate fait with others from so many traditions. It is almost time!
