The story of Francis' encounter
with the lepers occurs in all the early biographies and in the writings of Francis. We will begin by examining the encounter in three movements - before the encounter, the encounter and after the encounter.
The second movement will allow time to enter into the encounter through a guided reflection and time for personal reflection.
The third movement will bring us to an examination of lepers in Francis’ writings and applying what we have begun to break open to our present moment in time and our call as Franciscans to continuous conversion and ongoing formation.
Throughout the day there will be time for questions and sharing.
