One of the great things about being a Franciscan is that you never say, “goodbye” to a friar who comes to visit because you are certain to see him again sooner than you expect! As you travel around the Province, you never know who you are going to run into!
At the Nov. 20 to 22 Franciscan Experience Weekend (FEW) at St. Anthony Shrine in Boston, I crossed paths with my classmate, Fr. James Sabak, OFM, who was there to give a workshop on liturgy to the postulants (men in their first year of initial formation who live with our Boston community). Jim and I were ordained in 1999, and we probably see each other more often now than we did when we lived together! Good to see you Jim!
