Franciscan at the Finish Line

Last weekend I wrote about the marathon and our friend Alicia. The Chicago Tribune wrote about her, too. Turns out her gi-normous college debt was finished off by a Chicago benefactress, and Alicia ran the marathon as a novice in the new Franciscan community. (She is one of three novices, the first members of the new community.) When Alicia was first in discernment, Sr Helena told me about her. "Alicia's the real deal," was her conclusion. Looks like she's off to a good start!

What a wonderful story!! Praise God for His goodness and providence! I'm only a couple of weeks away now from beginning my Franciscan journey with the Anglican Poor Clares near Oxford, England. Fairly bouncing with excitement!
with love to all my sisters in all God's churches,
Tess.
