New York Times Does A Excellent Article on the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal

The Deacon Bench has a good article the New York Times did on Christmas Eve on this group of men. See One man's call: "You mean, people are actually doing that?"

This is one of those growing orders. I very much like when orders like this are highlighted.

Though the article does not go into this the order not only is the Order among the poor and doing the work of Catholic Social Justice they are also very Orthodox. It does get tiresome at times to see Catholics profiled that are indeed helping the poor and others but they seem to be often wild dissenters on other issues. In effect talking about the seamless garmet but actually tearing it apart themselves
