“Do you remember when you used to toss a rock into the lake – or into the ocean? Depending on the weight of the rock and the flow of the tide, the ripple effect took place. Our Franciscan mission is a weighty rock full of power for good, holding the potential for bringing about the reign of God throughout the whole world.
You are those ripples that carry our Franciscan values further and further. By tossing that rock again and again, you carry our mission beyond where our wildest imaginations can fathom. We can do nothing alone; nor do we want to.”
Sister Doris Pehowski, OSF
