Test your knowledge: Of these, how many were Franciscans?
Junipero Serra, Peter of Alcántara, Bonaventure, Anthony of Padua, Maximillian Kolbe, St. Padre Pio, Marianne Cope, Elizabeth of Hungary, Angela Merici, St. Brigid of Sweden, Elizabeth of Portugal, Thomas More and Pope John XXIII?
This week, on the SLHour, author Robert Ellsberg lists about 100 Franciscan saints and tells us what we can learn from them. Emilie gives us the weekly news, Billy Chan has some more questions about discernment on Church for Dummies and we meet singer/songwriter Meredith Augustin and listen to her album Boundless Mercy.
