St Francis of Assisi and his Charism

Last edited 4th October 2017

“St Francis' charism is certainly something for today, it endures and it is inspired. Today more than ever this simplicity calls us back to the heart of the Gospel. We don't need all these things that often put up a block between us and Christ. It is in the simplicity of things that you find the true joy of being a son or daughter of God”.
