St. Anthony of Padua, whose birthday we celebrate on August
15, had a sincere devotion to the Blessed Mother. Whether he was preaching
or praying, he never failed to call on Mary to assist him. Anthony was
an assertor of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary and once, while praying,
she appeared and confirmed that that great honor had been conferred
upon her and assured the Saint that he could continue to preach this, knowing
that he was right.

All members are encouraged to attend the 14th annual Rocky Mountain Franciscan Gathering October 9-10, 1998. This is a wonderful opportunity for meeting other Franciscans (seculars,
friars and sisters) not to mention the informative topics. This year the theme will be Franciscan Spirituality for the Third Millenium. The cost is minimal and it includes breakfast and dinner. If you
need a scholarship, contact the minister, Christina.
