Capuchin Saints and Blessed's Series

Peace to you all

John Paul the second once said of our order, that we are 'rich in Saints'...which is very true, some of them are even still alive today!!
Our Brothers who have been Altars come from all walks of life and encapsulate the diversity of our Fraternal charism and calling. We are going to reproduce a series of reflections on the lives of these men.written by Br Bernadine for the Korean Capuchin we begin with Seraphin of Montegranaro.

I hope you find these lives enriching as we continue to journey together through the year of faith.
