Franciscans Of The Immaculate Celebrate At Blackfen...

We were blessed, on this great Feast Day of the Immaculate Conception, to have the Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate coming to Blackfen to sing the propers for the Mass tonight.


After Mass, a few of us went off to a local establishment to continue the celebration and discuss the theology over a pint. The clinching argument has to be "Well, come on... if you were able to create your own mother, what would you do?"

A bit of a no-brainer, really!

I am envious but are they all Phillippinos? It would be good to think that there might be some British candidates for the order as well.

Franciscan friars and sisters helped us lead a memorable youth retreat on Holy Island two years ago. The youngsters had great fun and wonderful example and teaching.

That has to be the most elegant reframing of "potuit, decuit, ergo fecit" I've ever heard!
