16 Nov The Novices of Piedimonte Visit the General Curia
On Sunday, November 13th, 2016, the General Curia had a visit from some OFM novices currently doing their novitiate in Piedimonte Matese (Caserta – Italy). The novices were in Rome in order to participate in the Jubilee of Mercy for the Homeless, along with their Novice Master, Br. Massimo Tunno OFM.
After Mass in St. Peter’s, celebrated by Pope Francis, they came to lunch at the Curia — where the fraternity enjoyed a reminder of the joys of the early days of our vocation, while the novices got a sense of the size, and the international character, of the Order. May the novices — and ourselves too — be given the grace of perseverance!
