Rather than send you Easter greetings, I decided to send you a gift for Holy Week. It is a collection of stories for each day of Holy Week from the life of St. Francis of Assisi. And this Holy Week, our new pope, Pope Francis, will be celebrating the sacred mysteries in Rome. As a Catholic I am hopeful and heartened by the arrival of this modern day Francis… and eager to share these stories of the first Francis with you.
"Peace and All Good" was how Francis of Assisi greeted people. And so do I greet you, be you Christian or Jew, Muslim or Buddhist, Seeker or Doubter. And please pass this gift on to others. It is my gift to you and yours. -- Robert Béla Wilhelm
