Franciscan Focus

Just a simple blog of a Secular Franciscan trying to live life with a Franciscan focus.

Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George 

Oh, these Third Order Regular Franciscan sisters are a lovely community! I especially appreciated all the photos they so generously shared throughout their site, and I really liked the ones of some sisters making their final profession of vows in 2005 -- the closeup of their hands in a circle is so moving.

This is a good reminder for us all to pray for an increase in vocations to the religious life, secular orders, and the priesthood. (Well, actually, God has never stopped calling us, so it's more accurate to pray for an increase in folks hearing and answering His calls.)

There's an article in last week's National Catholic Register that makes these Sisters look great too. AND one of them has a terrific blog:
