From Cantalice, the Sister pilgrims traveled to Assisi, to walk in the footsteps of St. Francis and St. Clare. Assisi is where these two saints were born, baptized, and called into the service of God. It is a city rich in the Franciscan spirit of simplicity.
While in Assisi, the Sisters walked in the footsteps of St. Clare from San Rufino, near her home, to the gate where she met Francis and became the first Franciscan woman.
Sister Maria Louise reflected on the experience, saying, “I could almost hear Francis saying, ‘I have done what was mine to do. Now you must find what is yours.’”
