Bless you ,,You do it with joy,🤗

They are doing what they were called to do.

Doing God’s work ✝️

Last week, the Chapter of the Friars Minor of the Custody of the Holy Land gathered in Jerusalem to consider the life and ministry of the Holy Land Franciscans. They re-elected four members of the leadership team to advise the Custos of the Holy Land.

The friars evaluated their stewardship of places in the Holy Land, and considered creating replicas in countries where people cannot travel to the Holy Land. They discussed the training of friar-seminarians and fund-raising, while also celebrating the eighth centenary of the meeting of St. Francis with the Sultan.
