A Few Shots from the FI’s in Africa

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011

Notice the lion proof bars over the windows.

While I was in England, Fr. Alfonso gave me a few photos from the friars in Africa, and it wasn’t until I got back to America that I took a look at them. So you’ll have to forgive me for not having anything to write about the pictures. (more…)

FFI Website in India – IndiaMariae

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

Ave Maria!

The Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate in India have launched their official web site IndiaMariae.com and, as usual, Fr. Martin Mary, FI did a beautiful job with the graphics and content in very adverse conditions. Of note is an interesting article on the friars mission there: Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate in India.  It looks like the beginnings of a great chapter in the saga of the FI.  Deo Gratias!

Fi News #68 – Bushfire at Perth Friary ! ( 05min) >>> Play

In the afternoon of March 1st, 2010 a bushfire started near the friary in Perth, Australia and grew quickly. It jumped the main road and approached our backyard. We decided to evacuate the friary. We took the Blessed Sacrament, a few liturgical items of worth, a few personal items (passports, etc.) and the computers and loaded up the cars. We turned on the lawn sprinklers on the side facing the fire, closed all windows and doors, placed a statue of Our Lady to watch over the fire and drove down the road to a safe distance to wait it out. Roads were blocked by the police. After noticing that the smoke in the immediate area of the friary had died down and after the police told us the friary was ok, we went to a benefactor’s house for something to eat and drink only to be allowed back onto the property around 10:00pm. Damage was limited to a few sheds in the area, no homes or loss of life but about 47 hectares (115 acres) burned.

Immaculate Music #29 – A Beautiful Sung Version of the Creed ( 10min) >>> Play

Ave Maria!

On January 6th, 2010, the Franciscan Friars in Italy had the privilege of celebrating the Traditional Mass with Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos, President Emeritus of Ecclesia Dei. We hope you enjoy viewing some of the scenes from the Mass and listening to the Creed which was sung during the Mass and directed by Alessandro Pucci and Andrea Ferranti. The name of the chorus (in Italian) is the “Schola Cantorum ‘Santa Cecilia’ di Corridonia e Coro di Cloumurano”.

Friar Terrance sends ‘Ave Maria!’s and prayers to all.

Ave Maria!
