A New Year brings the Franciscan Moment -prayer, song, food… all the elements of life. First, let’s start with words uttered by St. Francis. Wherever we are, in every place, at every hour, at every time of the day, every day and continually, let all of us truly and humbly believe, hold in our heart and love, honor, adore, serve, praise and bless, glorify and exalt, magnify and give thanks to the Most High and Supreme Eternal God Trinity and Unity…Amen.
