As Holy Week ends and Easter approaches, Provincial Minister John O’Connor, OFM, reflects on a recent letter from the General Curia and extends holiday wishes to all friars and partners-in-ministry. A video message from the General Minister (pictured) can be found on the website of the Order of Friars Minor.
Brothers and sisters,
In his Easter message, our General Minister, Fr. José Rodríguez Carballo, OFM, encourages us to look to the past with gratitude, live the present with passion and to open ourselves to the future with hope.
My Easter prayer for each of you is that our fraternities and our ministry may be for others a witness to our love for the risen savior and the hope that the resurrection represents for all. I wish you peace and good and God’s many blessings in this Easter season.
— Fr. John O’Connor
