Pray and reflect with a
Franciscan saint this Lent
One Palm Sunday, a young noblewoman crept out of her family’s house under cover of darkness and escaped to a small chapel outside the city, where her friend Francis of Assisi was waiting to help her devote her life to Christ. She renounced her wealth and title, spent the rest of her life ministering to others, and founded her own religious order. Over 800 years later, St. Clare of Assisi remains a towering figure in the Franciscan tradition. 

This Lenten season, Franciscan Media presents a daily email series inspired by the life and legacy of this holy woman. Sign up to learn more about St. Clare and receive daily messages of inspiration and hope, reflections on how St. Clare’s holiness can remind us to focus on God today, brief prayers, and videos to enhance your Lenten practices.

Growing in Wisdom: Seeking Deeper Generativity
is a two-year program for those who are embracing the second half of life
and who are longing to explore the spiritual invitations of their wisdom years. How do I give my life to the world? And how do I prepare for eventual illness, diminishment and death, so that my death is my final blessing to my family, community and the world?

This program is rooted in the Forest Dwelling Program, Oblate School of Theology, and the ground-breaking work of Fr. Ron Rolheiser OMI. The program involves four 5-day intensives (September and February) over two years, monthly meetings with other participants in Elder Circles, a monthly meeting with a spiritual director, and optional monthly book studies. The Growing in Wisdom program is primarily offered on zoom. Applications are now being accepted for the September 2023 – June 2025 program. For more information, please contact Nancy Phillips, Coordinator, growinginwisdom@outlook.com.

You are invited to watch a recording of Fr. Ron’s recent webinar “The Fruits of My Life in the Wisdom Years":
