THE FRANCIS EFFECT THEN AND NOW: A CLOSE WALK WITH POPE FRANCIS AND HIS INSPIRATION, FRANCIS OF ASSISI
October 19th – 23rd, 2015
Come to Rome and Assisi and share in two of the most remarkably transformative events of Christian history. The way in which St Francis of Assisi with St Clare of Assisi transformed the Church and world of their day by the way they lived and spoke, and the way in which the renewal and re orientation of Christian living and mission is being quickened and changed by Pope Francis I.
You will be given close proximity to the person of the Pope and the living legacy of St Francis with St Clare, by visiting key places and people who can speak of Franciscan mission, in a way that helps you learn from them and reflect on their example for your own life and Christian leadership today, where you are. The Joy of the gospel enlightens and moves people with the Francis effect; what does this mean for us? It is by a joyful generosity that the Church captures the imagination of people then and now. Come and be refreshed and transformed at this remarkable time in Christian history. Let your Christian imagination be stirred and empowered in your own way, with God the only true source of our transformation and hope.
