08 Jan Koinonia 2019 – 4 (N.104): The Relationship between OFS and YouFra: Challenges and hopes
The Relationship between OFS and YouFra: Challenges and hopes
With this small writing I would like to share with you my joy of being part of this great project of our Franciscan family. I reached in Rome two months ago and I am in the process of accommodating myself and getting used to my new house and to this pastoral work that the Order has entrusted to me and I assume it with a great desire to continue learning and sharing the rich experience of our Franciscan spirituality.
The first topic I would like to deal with is about the challenging relationship between the OFS and YouFra. When we talk about relationship in the human sense, it implies an encounter, a bond and an exchange. But, even more, in the Franciscan world, it is marked by the experience that Francis of Assisi had with Christ who was poor and crucified for love. Through this experience, Francis showed us the wonderful gift of the fatherhood God and the brotherhood among us, his children.
