“Turn to where the light is shining “: seven years ago, the Franciscan friars left our parish. The new pastor, a diocesan priest, did his best to erase all signs of a Franciscan presence. At the time I was getting some acupressure treatments, and I would complain bitterly to the woman giving the treatments. Her only response: “Just take your light into that church.” And so I did, even when everything seemed dark. A new pastor arrived a year ago, and I am watching him become increasingly open to the charism of Francis and Clare. There certainly was no “cheap grace” here, but watching thus transformation of pastor and parishioners has made it worth paying the price.
