Faith Forum Book Discussion

About the event

Faith Forum  will begin meeting on Zoom tuesday June 23 at 7:00 p.m.  We will be reading and discussing the book, "Lord, Make Me an Instrument of Thy Peace" by Jon Sweeney. It is available online at Amazon or at Paraclete Press.

It covers the Prayers of Saints Francis and Clare.  It is hoped that by learning more about these great saints through the lens of their prayer life, we will all be encouraged to pray more as they did and, in doing so, discover a deeper level of intimacy with our God. All are welcome. Please just let me know if you plan to join us by email

The Complete Prayers of St. Francis and St. Clare, with Selections from Brother Juniper, St. Anthony of Padua, and Other Early Franciscans  We do not immediately associate Francis and Clare with prayer and praying. St. Francis, according to the most common legends, rarely sat still. St. Clare did, more so, but that was probably mostly because of the convent and the grille and the conventions of the time: she couldn’t be a walkabout friar. However, they did sit still. And they stood. And they danced. And they fasted. And they sang. In all these ways, Francis and Clare prayed for hours each day, as did the brothers and sisters who came after them on the Franciscan way. This prayer book gathers the stories and words of the prayer life and prayers of these remarkable Christians.
