Dear Friends of St. Anthony,

When I was reading this issue of The Anthonian-Franciscan Magazine, I really felt very excited about the articles. The places and people that you will be reading about are very close to my heart. The founder of Project CREATE lives not too far from the friary where I live. Father Benedict Taylor, OFM, who comes to our house once a week for prayer and dinner, is one of the most delightful friars I have ever met. 
Sacred Heart Church in Tampa, Fla. is a vibrant community housed in a very old and beautiful church, in fact, one of the most beautiful churches you will ever see. 
I particularly liked the photo story “Workers for the Harvest!” I was privileged to be at this ordination of two of my brother friars, now Fathers Ross Chamberland, OFM, and Jeffrey Jordan, OFM. These two young friars were ordained by one of my dear friends, Cardinal Sean O’Malley. The ceremony was a spirited and spectacular event that was moving as well as Franciscan at its core.
