Blessed Franz Jägerstätter is the patron of our fraternity in Flagstaff. Learn more about this inspiring man.
Our gatherings have been accessible via Zoom, as well as our council meetings (see photo below) due to Covid-19. But we are still reaching out to one another and finding creative ways to be 'in fraternity'. A few of our Franciscan sisters and brothers have been sewing masks for those in the health professions and have also shared those masks with us. So thoughtful!

Blessed Are Those - by Pope Francis
Blessed are those who remain faithful while enduring evils inflicted on them by others, and forgive them from their heart.
Blessed are those who look into the eyes of the abandoned and marginalized, and show them their closeness.
Blessed are those who see God in every person, and strive to make others also discover him.
Blessed are those who protect and care for our common home.
Blessed are those who renounce their own comfort in order to help others.
Blessed are those who pray and work for full communion between Christians.
All these are messengers of God's mercy and tenderness, and surely they will receive from him their merited reward.
Artist: Nicolo Liberatore. Late 15th century. This picture of Francis and Clare is part of a larger piece entitled, "The Banner of the Plague."
Artist: Tiberio Ranieri di Diotallevi, also known as Tiberio di Assisi. Painted in 1506. It is in the Basilica of St. Clare in Assisi.
This picture of St. Francis is a fresco in the lower church of the Basilica of St. Francis in Assisi. It was painted by Cimibue, also known as Cenni di Pepo, who lived from 1240 - 1302. Supposedly, Francis' nephew described Francis to the artist, thus influencing the facial features.
