Breaking in the Habit

Breaking in the Habit is a wonderful resource for anyone interested in and/or discerning the Franciscan life. Started by Holy Name Friar Casey Cole, OFM, when he began his journey as a Postulant, Breaking in the Habit chronicles Br. Casey’s experiences in the Franciscan Formation program and seeks to answer common, and not so common, questions about religious life in the Franciscan tradition.

In this video, Br. Casey engages in an in-depth discussion on his own vocation journey, formation to Friar life, and the place of the Church in the modern world.
