Franciscan Friars of the Renewal

Fraternal Life

We live together as brothers of one family, united in our love of Christ. The friars support one another through prayer, mutual encouragement, honest communication and joyful sacrificial service.

“Consecrated person are asked to bear renewed evangelical witness in a form of fraternal life inspired by principles of simplicity and hospitality as an example to those who are indifferent to the needs of their neighbor. This witness will of course be accompanied but a preferential love for the poor and will be shown especially by sharing the conditions of life of the most neglected.”

-Pope John Paul II, Vita Consecrata
