Spring breaks, week long recesses from studying calendared early spring at universities and schools in the United States and other countries, often call for changes of scenery, a relaxed schedule or just hanging out with family and friends. We, the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity, invite you to consider a ‘Franciscanized Spring Break’, a momentary pause in awe of this season of the year.
Here’s some simple, spiritual direction:
- Open your eyes to the subtle wonders of spring around you.
- Consider taking a photo and send it to us or just comment here on Franciscanized Word describing the beauty you see.
- Enjoy a perfect spring-time reading of The Little Flowers or The Fioretti, a collection of beloved stories about St. Francis and the early days of the Order, preserved by the awesome writer Brother Ugolino.
In the name of Jesus Christ our Crucified Savior, and of Mary His Virgin Mother. In this book are contained certain little flowers-to wit, miracles and pious examples of the glorious servant of Christ St. Francis, and of some of his holy companions; to the glory and praise of Jesus Christ. Amen. Continue the story…
