Saint Katharine Drexel founded the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament to minister primarily to Native Americans and African Americans in the United States. She used much of her inherited wealth to support both the sisters and the ministry.
Padre Pio was known for spending long periods of time in the confessional. It has been estimated that he heard two million confessions. He did not, however, allow this ministry to get in the way of his prayer life.
We are Franciscan Media, a sponsored ministry of the Franciscan Friars of Our Lady of Guadalupe Province. We strive to inspire a loving world that embraces the Franciscan spirit of harmony, joy, and simplicity. May our resources renew your spirit as we share God’s love in the spirit of St. Francis.
