Francis of Assisi: The Lord Gave Me Such Faith!
Fr. Bobby Barbara OFM Cap Retreat Director

A world full of violence, political polarization, and disagreements within the church: this was the world into which Francis of Assisi was born and raised. How, then, did he become a man of prayer, peace, and heroic charity? If was not easy, even for a genius like Francis. Our retreat will focus on how God’s grace in Francis’ life helped him live within his own turbulent times as an “instrument of peace,” and how Francis’ example and wisdom can help us live the Gospel in our own day.
