Prayer Fraternity Joy Love : CFR

“The Franciscan Friars of the Renewal were founded out of a desire to work more decisively for personal and communal reform. We follow our Lord in our life of prayer together, in our life of community together and also we follow the Lord and serve the poor by going out like Jesus asked to bring his Gospel to all the nations.”

“Prayer is the foundation of our life. Without the union of our Lord in prayer everything else makes no sense.”

“Praying unceasingly is really the essence of our life, no matter what life you’re called to, everything is drawn into the sense of the presence of God, and so praying while you’re working, praying when gathered together for the Hours of prayer, personal times of prayer, everything is sewn with prayer.”

“The fraternal life is a pillar of our life that holds us up, it is a source of strength and a source of encouragement.”
