Not something you see every day - that’s for sure. How wonderful to reflect on the sacrificial and all too short of life of St. Frances as you may worship in the same “chapel” as he did 800 years ago. Italy has done such a...More

We popped in for the morning Mass and it's apparent that the faithful are drawn to its quiet dignity and piety. Gorgeous but restrained embellishments add just the right atmosphere to the lively church. To be admired inside and outside.

The story of St Francis starts here. This is where he lived, worked and died. It is the big Church that surrounds the "baby" church--Porzuincola. It stands alone outside the main city. You can see it across the fields. It is a moving and beautiful...More
